JAMES Hayward, the trust’s director of facilities states the majority of the monies (fines) is reinvested in frontline services.
How about investing the monies towards a multi-storey car park which is drastically needed? This was mooted a while back but now seems to have gone onto the back burner and died a death.
There were 1,546 people who received a £60 parking fine which totalled £92,760, that is some ‘cash cow’ for the hospital and I sincerely hope that it does not deter them from proceeding with this much needed multi-storey car park.
It would be wrong for them to look on this problem simply as a type of private funding for the hospital.
Parking at the hospital will only get worse until common sense is shown and greater parking facilities are made available. Possibly a third of car parking space is allocated to staff which certainly does not help.
It really is time that some urgency was shown to the parking facilities for the hospital visitor.
