What I liked
My son needed to visit A&E (suspected meningitis), so my wife & I ended up spending the day with him whilst he was being checked over. The medical care was first rate, but between us we ended up being charged £20 for using the car park, which is pure extortion - we were there because we needed to be, and were charged a ludicrous rate for the privilige. I thought the NHS was supposed to be free at the point of care? Not so at Epsom hospital unless you go on foot or by bus!!!!!!
What could be improved
Free car parking for patients - particularly to A&E who have little or no control over how long they are at the hospital.
Free car parking for A&E patients.
