In November my wife had to attend the South East Scotland Breast Screening Programme at Ardmillan House.
As you are aware they have a very busy car park. This being our first visit to the area.
My wife had the added complication of recovering from a serious broken ankle and could only walk short distances. This being a difficult time for her it was paramount that she had little distance to walk and that I could accompany her.
Having been at the BSP Unit for a little while I then went out to move our vehicle once parking became available at Ardmillan House.
I have previously complained to Springwell practice by email as well as the BSP and also SCAN.
SCAN were the only ones to reply.
I will not, nor do I see why we should be expected to pay a parking charge when we have had to travel at least 30 miles to the BSP unit. In addition your car park only ever had three vehicles in it at any given time whilst we were there, hardly denying your patients and parking.
We will continue to ignore the vehement notices from Parking Eye.
At no time have we entered into any form of contract with Springfield Medical Centre or Parking Eye.
It is time NHS Lothian got it's act together at that location for the benefit of ALL visitors.
