"Emergency treatment"

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

After rushing my son to North Tees Hospital, I was disgusted that I was seen to quickly,( Mind you it was 5:20am), but had to wait nearly 3 hours to get discharged. This resulted in a Parking Eye fine. It wasn't as if the car park was full, and I was parked in a disabled parking spot, displaying a blue badge. It feels that money is more important than health, and disabled are getting penalised for being sick. I just hope that I don't have to have a extended hospital stay, as my family would not be able to afford to visit.
