"Rediculous parking! Fantastic staff!"
About: North Tyneside General Hospital North Tyneside General Hospital North Shields NE29 8NH
Last Saturday my baby boy had to come into Rake Lane to be checked out, he had to stay in overnight for observation and so my sister came down with some overnight things for me. She parked in the car park and paid for an hour straight away. She brought in the overnight things and left. Today she has received a fine for £70, after more than a week she cannot find the ticket and there is nowhere for her to contact to complain that she in fact paid. I am now waiting to see if I get a ticket even though I paid for a 24 hour period. The whole parking thing was so complicated that even though a nurse told me I would be exempt from paying all I needed to do was register my car on the system and give the ward my registration then I wouldn't have to pay I ended up paying as the thing was too complicated and wouldn't let me register my car without paying. The £70 fine my sister got is unacceptable. How can they charge her that when she paid and she was only dropping off things for my sick baby. The staff on the ward were amazing but I think in future I'll go to the RVI if this is what happens in your car parks!
