Fined for parking at A&E Last Sunday evening I unfortunately had to attend Sunderland, A&E, the only downside concerning A&E was the wait to see a doctor and the poor privacy when with the doctor - I heard a detailed discussion between a doctor and a elderly woman concerning her rear passage through the thin curtain that separated our respective cubicles. The treatment was excellent, the staff friendly and efficient and I left knowing I had received as good a service as I could expect given it was A&E. However, I was less than happy to have my driver receive a parking ticket for having gone out of his way and rush me to A&E. I being preoccupied with my condition wasn't taking any notice of getting there or parking the car. He parked, I headed for A&E, he did apprently try to pay £2 but the machine refused the money and he was more concerned as about me than the car parking machine and so followed me into A&E. Now I have a fine to pay - to a company that routinely rejects appeals Sunderland Royal, bet your feeling proud of yourselves and your milking of another 'cash cow'
