"Disabled car parking"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

Anything else?

I have nothing but praise for the hospital and it's wonderful staff however - the disabled parking is not good - on each of my visits I have counted at least 10 cars parked in the disabled car park near the fracture clinic without blue badges - it appears to be worst on Saturdays and Sundays ? I have even seen staff in uniform getting into cars without badges - totally unacceptable when blue badge holders have no where to park because this car park is full

Response from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

We do acknowledge that this has been a worsening problem over the last few months, which is impacting on those patients, visitors and carers who need to use these parking spaces most.

From next week (w/c 14 October) we will be increasing patrols in these car parks to ensure that both patients and staff are parking appropriately. We will also politely remind our own colleagues that when parking on-site, only designated staff car parks should be used and describe the impact inappropriate parking has on our patients and visitors.
