"Not warned usual Car Park Entrance was Closed"

About: Macclesfield District General Hospital

I had an appointment for a 5 Minute Cancer Stomach Injection and was not warned in advance the Car Park Entrance off Victoria Road was Closed and to use the Entrance off Chester Road instead. Had I being warned it would have spared me a lot of Chaos and Confusion.

I was driving round in Circles instead, as the Entrance off Chester Road had a Road Closed sign identical to the sign off Victoria Road, so of course I wrongly thought that Road to the Car Park was Closed.

There was a diversion sign instead pointing to the key workers Homes Site (west park site ) instead adding to the Chaos and Confusion.

Consequently I was driving round and round in Circles instead until I eventually decided to try the Entrance off Chester Road and was able to park at the Car Park.

In Conclusion I could have been spared this unnecessary ordeal if I had been warned in advance and the sign had been correctly positioned. logo
