We all know that parking can be difficult today anywhere, however:
People have been complaining about the car parking here for many years now, and all you do is render lip service!
I have been here 3 times recently & have to come again tomorrow (with my wife who has suffered a stroke) & I still can’t work out just where I’m supposed to park!
The first time (the day of the stroke) it took me over 30 minutes to park, & then I parked in the wrong place.
Coming to hospital is stressful the best of times, & even more so when you’re coming for urgent life-saving-help!
Signs direct me to one of the several car parks, but when I actually go to enter at the barrier, they seem to then say that they are for staff-only !
What moron devised this system ? And why has something still not been done to solve these basic problems?
Also: The way the car-parks are laid out is ridiculous, & the sign-age is nonsensical;
One large car park with one or two ways in & out would make much better use of the available land, enabling many more cars to park, & making it much easier & faster to find a car space, & thereby much less stressful .
You are quite happy to charge (& fine) people to park here, isn’t it about time you used that money to provide the service that we are supposed to be receiving, & which has already been paid for by the tax payers, when the place was built !
Before we leave the EU: Perhaps you should spend some of the huge Europe budget to solve this problem, rather than waste it on none urgent & unneeded projects ?!
These car parks seem to be run-for-profit by private enterprise: Much better to scrap that, & use the money to improve things.
