I am trying to support my daughter as much as I can with Chemo, Herceptin, breast surgery and Radiotherapy, as the parking is virtually non existent at all the hospitals, I was told that I could catch a shuttle bus to the hospital which I thought was a very good idea, except that I could not find any information.
I phoned the transport dept of the hospital during the week and during the day, but it was just an answer machine, I left my details for them to ring me back.
I heard nothing so I picked up a leaflet from reception at the hospital, it said that I could get it at Debenhams, but there is nothing to say which of the many stops it stops at, wherever I stood the bus sailed past in the outside lane, the driver looked at me each time, I was told by a lady waiting for another bus that the shuttle bus did not stop at Debenhams anymore only at Primark.
I walked slowly as I am disabled and of course yet another bus went by, I eventually caught the bus to be told by the driver that I was obviously standing in the wrong place, by the time I got to the hospital my daughter was already having treatment.
