"Disabled car parking"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

Anything else?

Like a previous reviewer I have trouble parking in the disabled car park due to cars parking there without blue badges. yesterday I counted 12 and today 14. I have also seen the same cars reoffending - are they staff ? Please get this sorted out urgently.

Response from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Thank you for your comments. 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.
