I arrived at a and e with my father in law and parked right outside the department. After registering my father in law and getting change I went out to put money in the machine and had received a ticket after 17mins. the a and e staff advised me that the first 30 mins were free and rang the parking attendants on my behalf. They came and took the ticket off me. A few days later I received a fine!!
I'm disgusted that people visiting the A and E department are not entitled to 30 mins but everyone else is!
No-one plans a trip to a and e, so being unprepared should be allowed!!
