"Positive experience at New Victoria Hospital but some problems with car park"

About: New Victoria Hospital / Day surgery

(as the patient),

None of us LIKE surgery, but the whole experience having day surgery in November was very positive. My thanks to surgeon, sister and nurses.

However, not being, not intending to become, a 'regular' I found finding the entrance from the 'underneath' car parking area not easy. Signage could be a lot better for very little budget. Also, even if car spaces were not numbered, having the pillars labelled 'a', 'b', 'c' or/and painted different colours could help in retrieving the car. There are not too many like me with a personal GPS in their head for retrieving their car.

Thank you.
