What could be improved
Since the building of the New Addenbrookes Hospital, the Outpatients, and in particular, I refer to what is now the Rehabilitation Clinic 9, has had inadequate parking for the disabled patient.
I have been a patient at Addenbrookes since around 1949. I have been overseas since 1987 and returned in May 2008. The parking has not improved in 20 odd years for us.
Surely, being Outpatients, we should have adequate parking / carpark, with a lift, close by and a covered walkway linking the buildings.
It is too far for me too walk, other than a short distance, and fear of slippery conditions and bad weather are a continual concern. If I cancel an appointment due to the inability to get to the Clinic, I feel it is the hospital's responsibility.
Also, we have an aging population which is putting greater strain on available places.
Is this being considered?
Can the Outpatients be moved next to a carpark with disabled parking places, or could a car park be built next to the existing Outpatients?
We are outpatients.
I would like to hear that this is being considered.
