I thnk it is absolutely ridiculous that there is nto a geographical telephone number for this hospital. Many places npw have bothe the o844 number anad an alternative geographical number. Today I ahve had cause to call North Tyneside Hospital, I eventually got through to the switchboard, then waited a number of minutes for the ward staff to answer. I realise that the staff are very busy, but the cost of these calls add up. Profit profit profit is all they care about. Also yesterday my hsband was admitted, I dropped him off at A&E and then tried to park the car, as I am disabled I need to be on the closest car park, I had to sit for 25 minutes for a space to become available, this is ridiculous in my opinion, conme on get your act together. Tonight it will have to be taxis, more expense. My husband is terminally ill, this all adds to the stress of our situation. It makes me sick!!!
