About: Southmead Hospital Southmead Hospital Bristol BS10 5NB
Posted by Malcolm Scott
I regularly take my wife to the Orthopaedic department at Southmead. The treatment is very good, however the parking is chaotic and expensive. It is not unusual to drive around for 30 minutes or more trying to find a place. ( I believe the average time is closer to 40mins). I have met a few people who have not turned up for their appointment because they got fed up looking for a space. What will happen when the new hospital opens God only knows. Having to pay £2.50 to park for an hour is extortionate and having been told that charges and times were as a result of public consultation, I would like to meet anyone who prefers to pay £2,50 instead of £1.00 an hour !! The parking situation for the new hospital needs to be sorted out as a matter of some urgency. Don't say use the bus because there aren't any buses from S. Glos to Southmead.
