What could be improved

Car parking, although not within the hospitals remit, is scandalous. To be charged £4 to bring my 9 month old son to A&E at 1.30am is bad in itself, but when the car park is pot holed, badly maintained with bays not even marked out properly, it makes you feel even more sick before getting to A&E. It's a pure money making scheme and someone's pockets are being lined, and unfortunately it's not the NHS. Very very sad state of affairs....

Response from Watford General Hospital

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to post your comments, which have been passed onto staff. As a hospital Trust we have to make difficult decisions regarding how and on what we spend our constrained resources. We are sure you will acknowledge that it is our duty to ensure that we focus these resources on patients. In the event that you may entitled to a concession rate, information on a range of parking concessions is also widely available throughout all our hospitals and on our website www.westhertfordshirehospitalsnhs.uk
