visiting buckland hospital this afternoon, 26/02/2013, I found a NHS white van parked in a disabled bay directly outside the main hospital doors. The only card in window said it was collecting bloods?
As a blue badge holder I had to park across the street. We expect the bays to be on a first come first parked basis but staff should really know better than to abuse the use of bays, I believe there are only 2 available.
To add insult to injury the driver was sitting inside the main entrance drinking tea /coffee with 2 female employees. When I remarked how bad it was that a hospital van was in the bay he never said a word, but after a couple of minutes walked out and got in the van. The ladies sharing the table said it is something the drivers always do, even though they have been told it is wrong. Wrong? I think it is a disgusting abuse of the blue badge scheme and they should be penalised
