"Parking at RSH"
About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital Royal Shrewsbury Hospital Shrewsbury SY3 8XQ
I visited the RSH A&E department to accompany an elderly relative and was appalled on a dark very wet evening to have to contend with new parking meters. When leaving I tried to use the meter it was very dark, pouring with rain and very difficult to understand how to use it, the attendant tried to help, but he too was not familiar with the machine, and was rather grumpy with me because I dared to say what a problem they were. I cannot understand why the management decided to install them at this time of year, and why they need to be so difficult to use!! When we are distressed with an ill relative, to have to face this big problem is beyond belief. I can understand machines if I have the time to work them out, but how the elderly or people who find it difficult to use machines will manage I do not know. At a time of illness this is the last thing we need to have to contend with, I feel sure management must live on a different planet to the rest of us, and I do hope they will look at the problems and also have patience with people who cannot manage them. I do wonder do the Management have to face the same problems with parking as us poor mortal patients and their family.
