"Car parking after traumatic birth"

About: Trowbridge Community Hospital

Disgusted that I have received a parking ticket for £85 I had just been discharged from the RUH. I have found out a month later as my vehicle is a company one so work have just notified me. Being on statutory maternity pay this is a lot of money for us to pay. (Two full time working parents with low income coming in now).

We attended the maternity department After an 11 night stay at the a RUH having had my first child. He had been in intensive care and I required a blood transfusion so my husband and I were shattered and not on form and perhaps did not put our car number plate into the machine whilst waiting for an appointment with our new born baby.

Will be following this up.
