The cost of staff parking permits for Ninewells Hospital in Dundee is to be increased.
Vinci Park made the announcement as the firm confirmed it will undergo a name change and will be known as Indigo from November 5.
The 2.5% rise means the annual cost of a staff permit will come to £408.36.
Executive director of the Scottish Patients Association, Dr Jean Turner, said: “It’s actually a business that is profiting off the misfortune of people. They are the loved ones of sick people.
“It seems very generous not to raise fees for visitors and patients at a time when everyone’s trying to make ends meet.
“But it’s a disgrace that they are allowed to charge people at all.”
Vinci Park UK said: “We can confirm there are no plans to increase the parking fees paid by visitors and patients at Ninewells. Staff parking permits will be increased by 2.5% on November 1.”
