Dundee politicians are set for crunch talks with NHS Tayside over parking at Ninewells Hospital.
Ninewells is one of only three hospitals in Scotland where visitors still must pay for parking.
Health board NHS Tayside agreed a Private Finance Initiative that sees an outside company, Indigo, operate the car park on their behalf and charge motorists for use.
West End Liberal Democrat councillor Fraser Macpherson called for cross-party talks on the car park earlier this month because of a rising number of complaints about the service.
He said drivers have been complaining about rising charges and a lack of capacity in the car park.
NHS Tayside has now told Mr Macpherson it is scheduling a discussion about parking when members of the health board meet MSPs and MPs on September 29.
