Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine has asked for the unfair charges to be removed so everyone attending hospital has free access to cash.
Christine said: “I was contacted by constituents about the unfairness of having to pay a fee in order to access money whilst at hospital.
“There is no other option and people shouldn’t be penalised for it, particularly during difficult times.
“I contacted the company to ask if they would consider removing these fees under their free access to cash scheme and they are looking at whether it meets the criteria. I’ll keep everyone informed of the outcome.”
