I attended this hospital to visit my elderly mother who had been admitted after a fall. I had driven 2.5hours on Christmas Eve arrived at the hospital at 18.30 . The weather was atrocious . I went to pay at the carpark machine which was extremely badly lit.. After queuing in the rain to buy a ticket the machine indicated ' not in use'. I entered the hospital and queried this (unfortunately I don't know the name of the person) and was told that didn't have to pay over the Christmas period . I have since received the parking charge charge notice from parking eye and have paid £40. I was there for 1 hour 16 minutes in total. To add insult to this they have charged me 70p to pay by debit card which is unheard of and is plainly a further way of extracting additional funds . It beggars belief why the NHS trust have got involved with this type of organisation!
