"My mum's appointment did not take as long as finding a space to park"

I took my elderly mother for a hospital appointment today, 3 June 2014, at 1000 hrs. After driving round the car park twice I was forced to drop her off outside the main hospital, resulting in her having to walk in herself unaided (she uses a stick). I then drove round the car park again, and again, and again until I found a space before frantically running up the hill to get my mum from reception and take her to her appointment. My mum has dementia and wouldn't have found the correct department on her own. My mum is also a blue badge holder but that made no difference.
The car parking facilities at this hospital fall far, far short of what is required and I think it's a disgrace that this hasn't been addressed long before now.
Please note, at no time did I see any car park attendant to assist.
It should be noted that my mums appointment did not take as long as finding a space to park.
