I was taken to accident and emergency in a lot of pain by my girlfriend back in November We parked the car ,payed for parking and waited to be seen . The nurses and doctors were fantastic although I did have to wait for a consultant to come see me to give a clearer diagnosis. Which must of taken longer than I thought as a few weeks later I received a parking fine for going beyond my paid time . Obviously when visiting a and e your thoughts are not on parking tickets and more on getting urgent treatment. I now have a fine of £120 for overstaying in the car park for what must have only been minutes in a emergency situation . I think the fact that your making money out of people for being sick is extremely unfair . But to let these unscrupulous parking company's also demand wildly over inflated fines to people is a disgrace
