Nurse who racked up £2,000 in parking fines after working past end of her shift loses legal fight

A NHS nurse who was fined fifteen times at a total of £2,040 because she worked beyond the end of her shift will have to pay the huge sum after she lost a landmark legal case against the hospital cark park operators.

Julie Lindsay, who has worked as a clinical nurse specialising in breast cancer for nearly 30 years at NHS Tayside, will have to pay the fine plus expenses to Indigo Park Services UK Ltd.

Ms Lindsay works at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee in the mornings and in Perth Royal Infirmary, 24 miles away, during the afternoon, meaning that a parking permit was not suitable.

She was one of three nurses from Ninewells Hospital to be told to pay £4,077 in parking fines plus expenses by Sheriff Lorna Drummond at Dundee Sheriff court.

Indigo Park Services UK Ltd began legal action against the nurses for unpaid parking fines and recovery charges. The case is expected to lead to more drivers, including hospital workers, to be sued for payment through the courts.
