"'Parking Eye' at Wansbeck hospital: terrible..."

I regularly visit Wansbeck hospital, as both my parents have cancer and are receiving treatment. I have registered my vehicle details at reception on the oncology day unit. Which I renew on a regular basis, so that it doesn't expire. However, over the last six months I have received several parking charge notices for £70.00. I have just received another fine today, despite being registered. I have contacted the oncology receptionist in the past and she has been very nice in sorting it out for me. I feel I have enough to deal with regarding hospital visits, without the extra worry of receiving fines. As I am sure, the oncology staff have enough work to do, without the extra burden of having to sort out a parking company's inadequacies. I haven't telephone the oncology ward, as this current fine is only relating to one day last week and I visited the hospital again on the Thursday, so there may be yet another fine on its way! The staff on both the oncology day unit and clinic do a wonderful job. It's just a terrible shame that the hospital have employed such an unprofessional parking company .
