I went to have a blood test 2 weeks ago and was told at reception that the waiting time was over 2 hours!!! I was unable to stay as I had already attended an appointment which was already costing me a small fortune in the car park. Plus I care for my Mum and had to get back home to her. I suspected that the hospital would not offer me money towards my car parking fee due to the fact that they were the problem that people were being kept waiting! Hospital car parks should have one set realistic fee. That way people pay to park there but do not pay extra because the hospital can't get its act together! They could have their car parking ticket stamped at the department/ward they are visiting. Why is it allowed that sick people and visitors of the sick and dying are charged in this way. I will say though that the hospital cleanliness has improved and the food on the wards has improved dramatically.
