"Lack of Disabled Parking"
About: Royal Sussex County Hospital Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton BN2 5BE
Posted by Bob (as ),
Parking at Princess Royal and at Royal Sussex County Hospitals cause me great difficulty. The knock-on effect adds to the financial burden by my needing hospital transport to enable me to attend appointments. This is because I am an permanent wheelchair user and and also have Rheumatoid Arthritis, limiting my wheelchair mobility. I am unable to park at either hospital and access the main building independently. Despite having made numerous enquiries, I fail to get anyone who understands my preference of retaining my independence and to be able to attend hospital on my own and without difficulty. Something should be done to make access to health care possible to ensure that the Hospital Trusts conform to the Disability Equality Duties placed on them.
I look forward to your response on this issue.
