With 7000 applications and renewals a year, the portal will free up considerable time to allow hospital staff to get on with their important work to help patients.
This new service comes as APCOA and the University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust announce the continuation of their partnership with a new three year contract that will commence on 1st August 2017.
The contract, which can eventually be extended by up to seven years, covers over 1700 spaces across a range of car parks at the Royal Stoke University Hospital, including a number of 20-minute drop-off bays.
APCOA’s Regional Managing Director for UK & Ireland Kim Challis said:
“The new virtual permit application system will bring the issuing of staff permits into the digital age, and should make the whole process simple and convenient for all.”
Andrew Foster, Transport and Car Parking Services Manager, for University Hospitals of North Midlands NHS Trust, said:
“We are looking forward to working closely with our car parking management partners APCOA.
“The setting up of the new Portal service will greatly improve the customer experience and management of our permit system.”
