"Disabled parking"

About: Queen's Medical Centre

Anything else?

The disabled parking near the fracture clinic often seems to be full of cars without blue badges and in some cases being misused by staff from the hospital. Security staff never seem to check it and I have seen genuinely disabled drivers unable to park in that particular car park. Surely something could be done to check up on this more?

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.
