"There should be a warning about the parking."

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

Anything else?

It took me over an hour to move 100m to get into the parking. Shocking. I understand there's limited space in the city but at the very least the website should highlight it clearly to all who have to attend the hospital. I even googled parking there the day before and nothing relevent came up. If there had been a warning regarding the dire parking I would have left earkier or found a different way to the hospital. A little bit of organisation here could help other people a lot and possibly cut down on the pronblem.

Other than that, 3 out of the 4 staff I spoke to were lovely and helpful, 1 was incredably rude, so overall quite satisfied with the hospital itself.
