Dr Victor Aziz, a Consultant Psychiatrist said: "If we abolish prescription charges, we should also abolish car park charges and make life easy for people living in Wales".

Swansea NHS Trust last year made more than £1m from parking charges, resulting in a profit of £443,810.

Neither North Glamorgan NHS Trust nor Velindre NHS Trust charge patients to park on their premises.
