Took my 83 yr old mother for Cataract Surgery today, I cannot fault the Nursing and Medical Care. However, what lets this Trust down big time is their lack of parking facilities. I have never experienced such appalling car parking in a Hospital in my life and I work for the NHS.
We were unable to park and time was getting closer to the when the surgery was due. We parked in a Disabled Bay, my mother uses a wheelchair and is waiting for her permit. I left a note saying that we were using a wheelchair plus paid for a ticket.
But we still got a ticket, which will be £88 if not paid in 28 days and £40 if paid in 14 days. Even Student Nurses are expected to pay £10 a day to go on duty! !
