A quality car park award recognising safety has been retained by Southend University Hospital.

A recent re-assessment by John Mills, Essex Police accredited assessor and Mike Bibby, development manager for the South East, found strict risk assessment and safety criteria set by the police had been met.

 Southend University Hospital has won a total of seven Park Mark awards since 2007, which is an excellent achievement. Over the past 12 months alone, 900,000 vehicles have passed through the hospital's car parks with no incidents recorded.

 Mike Bibby said: "This is another good example of what can be achieved as a result of dedication and diligence."

He added: "Everyone using the site can be confident that their safety and that of their vehicle is being well catered for."

 Kevin Chinnery, service operations manager at the hospital, said: "A high standard has been set by security and the parking team and they thoroughly deserve this award."
