"disabled parking qmc by fracture clinic"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a carer),

How come non blue badge holders constantly park in the disabled car park by the fracture clinic, the amount of cars parked in there by the general public is a joke and the amount of warnings blatantly thrown on the floor is just a joke. we come three days a week with my partners son and you can never park in there after 8. 45 am and Saturdays it becomes a staff car park. their should be better policing of the disabled car parks. I and my partner have seen on a number of occasions one occupant get in their car only to pass their blue badge to another friend or family member,

and no one seems to ever see if the person/persons in the car actually match the photograph on the badge, it's alright putting silly little parking tickets

look a like warnings on the windows for them to be ignored,

years ago many hospitals and I've worked in quite a few all over the UK used to put large sticky warnings on the vehicles that took ages and ages to remove off the windscreen or side windows at much inconvenience to the offender why not still use them. fed up of making our disabled child walk from car park three

Response from Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust

Thank you for getting in touch. Sorry for the lateness of our reply. There appears to be a technical issue with the website presently which is delaying receipt of some comments. We have raised this with Patient Opinion to fix. There have been some problems in recent months with both patients and staff too often parking inappropriately in disabled spaces (without blue badges). We have taken action by ensuring better policing of our car parks to ensure these spaces are being used appropriately. Your feedback has been noted and will be shared with the parking team.

Response from Queen's Medical Centre

This feedback was originally posted in December 2014 via the Patient Opinion website. There is presently a technical problem with the NHS Choices website. This means a back log of comments are being pulled from the Patient Opinion website later than usual. We have escalated our concerns to NHS Choices, who have assured us that their team are working to resolve the problem. We responded to this post in December 2014. This issue has since been investigated and fully resolved.
