Palma.—Patients with kidney disease who need to attend Son Espases hospital in Palma for dialysis won't have to pay for parking, the President of the Alcer Association, Manuela de la Vega said yesterday.

De la Vega was explaining on social network sites that although parking fees are to be reintroduced at Son Espases on 22nd August, the management has confirmed that patients needing dialysis won't need to pay. They will however, have to collect a ticket from the dispensing machine which will subsequently be stamped to allow them to leave the car park without paying.

New arrangements are now in place at the car parking facilities at Son Espases. One area has been sectioned off and is for the sole use of staff, and the other is for hospital users.

There are over 900 free places for staff but the number remains inadequate. A special card will be needed for access to staff parking. Patients and visitors using the other part of the car park will need to pay 0.02608 euros per minute amounting to 10.76 euros a day, confirmed Balearic health service Ib-salut.
