"Car Park Facilities"

About: The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

My father is 77 and has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Hes still quite active and would rather drive to his appointments. But not only is the car park the furthest away from the Linda McCartney centre he also has to pay full parking prices even considering he has a disabled badge. If he has to attend the hospital frequently for chemo he is paying on average 3 to 5 pounds if not more for each visit. Why is it not free or subsidised for people with actual appointments. Its disgusting that not only as a pensioner he now has to pay for the privelage to receieve treatment before he passes

Response from The Royal Liverpool University Hospital

Thank you for your comments. We do appreciate that the costs of frequent parking when visiting the hospital can be significant. All patient and visitor parking at the Royal is provided at Q Park. While it is not possible to provide free parking, concessionary parking is available in such circumstances. To arrange this, please contact travel manager Graham Furniss on 0151 706 3638 or speak to the department your father is visiting. We also provide a free transfer service from Q Park to any entrance at the Royal, if your father has difficulty in getting to the hospital from the car park. Once again thanks you for your comments.
