"Why the high parking fees?"

My father is currently in Southend Hospital, he is very old and frail, he does not have long to live. I live overseas and my personal circumstances prevent me from being with him. He has one friend who visits and sits quietly with him, even though he may not know she is there, she feels this gives him comfort and she is able to be there in my stead. However, she is prevented from visiting on a more regular basis as the parking cost is extremely high. I appreciate the excellent care my father is receiving but fail to understand why the family and friends, of those patients who need extended stays, are penalised for their loyalty and kindness.
