"Car parking is a farce!"
Posted by Marty774
Visited this nice hospital with my daughter who had hurt her arm the care was great and have no negative feedback to give. However the car parking system is a joke!on the 3rd of November 2014 I arrived at 11:01 bought a ticket for 2 1/2 hours at £2:50 fine I thought little steep but ok, doesn't pay to be ill in this country by the way does it? Left the hospital at 12:25 so no problem with parking! A week later I get a fine through the door with my car photographed in and out and a £70 fine. I bought a ticket and put my 3 numbers of my registration as I have done for as long as I can remember in lichfield parking areas. I used the hospital on the 1st of February also same money less time no parking ticket! My point is, everyone please ensure if you use these types of car parks you keep the ticket for a good 2 weeks and don't throw it away! The good news is I kept mine and have proof I paid for my visit, the bad news is I have to spend my time and effort doing something I shouldn't have to do writing a letter of dispute. Please sort out this system it's spoiling the hospital.
