Aberdeen hospital parking boosted by £10m donation

Aberdeen Hospital is set to increase the number of patient and visitor parking spaces following a pledge of up to £10 million by businessman Sir Ian Wood.

The donation from Sir Ian's Wood Foundation, which was awarded to Aberdeen's Foresterhill campus, marks one of the largest single charitable donations ever made to an NHS facility in Scotland.

According to the organisation, the pledge aims to provide enough money for the construction of the multi-storey car park with a minimum of 1,000 spaces that would serve the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the local children's and maternity hospitals.

Commenting on the pledge, Sir Ian suggested that his donation had been prompted by the parking problem experienced by friends and family, which are likely to become exacerbated following the development of new hospital facilities.

"With every pound of public funding badly-needed for the care of people in the city and Aberdeenshire, we are pleased to be able to support a project which will not take money away from frontline services but will greatly improve the access to facilities for those visiting the hospital," he said.

NHS Grampian has publicly welcomed the offer of funding for the project, which will get under way in early 2015 following approval from the hospital board.
