At Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester, its Car Parking Customer Care Team was re-accredited for the British Parking Association’s Park Mark award, including its staff car park (MSCP) and the new Central and North car parks for patients and visitors.
Four operatives Brian Oldbury, Roy Holt, Phil Collins and Phil Jones look after the Trust’s car parks seven days a week. Although the team are based at the Trust’s main reception desk in Hope Building, they are often seen out and about around the site, managing traffic flow, dealing with enquiries, helping patients find their way around the site and ensuring systems and equipment, such as the car park pay machines, are all working effectively.
Facilities Manager Dave Armstrong said: “It’s really pleasing to once again receive the Park Mark accreditation, especially as we’ve recently been through a period of great change, handing the management of East Car Park on Stott Lane back to Salford City Council and opening the two new car parks on our site.
“Our car parks have been vetted by the police and they have confirmed we’re providing car parks that are clean and are well managed, lit and monitored – these factors help to deter any criminal activity or anti-social behaviour on our site and keep patients, visitors and staff safe.”
