Over the past month (january2015) I have attended the R B I on two occasions between 1345. and 1430 . There would appear to be a major problem with the car park as the roads surrounding the hospital were totally gridlocked . On the first Occasion I was forced to drop off my elderly relative and make my way home as it was impossible to park . My relative was forced to call a taxi in order for her to return to her home. The second occasion was just as bad with traffic backup to the M65 motorway and to the junction of Haslingden Rd and Bank Lane, in light of the recent news that a new GP unit is to open on the same site as the hospital . I hope that consideration is being given to extending the car park and also making provisions for a further access road to ease the flow on and off the site. If nothing is done to elevate the problem then I am of the opinion the the situation will only get worse and more appointments will be missed or delayed.
