"Cancelled hospital park and ride"
About: Kent & Canterbury Hospital Kent & Canterbury Hospital Canterbury CT1 3NG
I visited this hospital on 14th Jan 2016. Went to the hospital park and ride service only to be told it has been discontinued. Drove to hospital where it was impossible to park. Drove back to park and ride, got on bus to bottom of Ethelbert Road and walked (approx 10 minutes). Due to parking problems was late for appointment. Met several patients in the same situation, no one seemed to know park and ride had been stopped. I am seriously and chronically ill and the situation was appalling. This Trust has obviously forgotten what they are there for - to care for people who are ill and in need if treatment and increasingly it is obvious across the Trust (I attend mostt of their hospitals) that they have no regard for patient care or safety. Saying that if you can actually get to the hospital, the medical and nursing staff are consistently wonderful!
