I do realise that driving to the new hospital is a self-inflicted nightmare and patients are strongly advised not to, but yesterday I made the mistake of trying it. It's not just that there are insufficient parking spaces, but the car parks are SO badly designed. P2, the multi-storey, has no barrier control so there is nothing to stop cars continuing to pour in even once it's totally full, and then there is gridlock. There was a man in high vis standing at the entrance observing all of this but doing nothing. The flat car park near A&E (P3) is appallingly laid out so that cars get blocked into dead ends in the search for spaces and can't get back out again. After 45 minutes of misery trying to park I eventually abandoned the whole thing. I can see a new multi-storey is being built, but an electronic system to show where spaces are, and proper control, are essential.
