NHS Grampian has issued more than 1,100 parking tickets in Aberdeen in just six months.
New figures released by the health board show 1,182 tickets were sent to rogue parkers at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Royal Cornhill Hospital between January and May this year.
But despite this, only 151 parking tickets have been paid.
Of the tickets issued, eight complaints have been lodged.
An NHS Grampian spokeswoman said: “Motorists who park across hatched areas or on double yellow lines force pedestrians and other drivers into a dangerous position.
“Issuing civil parking remedies (parking tickets) is one way of reminding motorists of their responsibilities.
“It is not – and has never been – an income generation scheme.
“We reserve the right to cancel civil parking remedies if the motorist is able to provide a legitimate explanation for the incident eg called to hospital in an emergency.
“It should also be noted that we put a ticket amnesty in place earlier this year following a new round of parking permit applications.”
All paid parking tickets have been paid at £20.
The figures come after council officers approved plans for a multimillion-pound car park at ARI earlier this month.
The parking tickets which have been issued are for reasons including being on double yellow lines as well as being in a disabled bay without displaying a valid badge.
Others include parking in a space reserved for two or more sharing a vehicle, parking on grass and exceeding the drop off/collection time of 15 minutes.
