"Parking a rip off!!!!"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

Paid £2.00 for twenty minutes parking, just in for an x-ray, straight in and out. I will change my hospital next time. I would rather pay for the fuel and go somewhere else than be robbed blind to get some treatment, free at the point of contact, they milk your pocket as you leave!!!

Response from Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

Hello, I'm sorry to hear how you feel about the car parking charges. The majority if not all of hospitals charge for parking, the revenue from this funds the hospital's security and car park managment service, including maintenance. Alternatively, there is a public bus service that stops at the hospital, and there are bike sheds if cycling is an option for the patient. Many thanks Sarah Mainprize
