"I ended up on the roof of the hospital!"

About: Royal Surrey County Hospital

What I liked

The bit of the building I needed (when I finally got to it) looked new and very clean.

What could be improved

The car park is a badly designed hopeless free-for-all.

The building I visited was literally a building site in one half, while the other half was operational. Because of terrible signage I unwittingly ended up in the building site bit. A builder helpfully suggested that the bit of the building I needed was "at the top of the stairs". When I opened the door (not locked) at the top of the stairs I ended up on the roof of the hospital! Eventually, after banging on a locked door, someone let me in to the right bit of the hospital - which wasn't very security conscious of them, but was at least kind.
