Hos­pi­tal car park frus­tra­tion

East Kilbride News - - EAST KILBRIDE VIEW -

Dear Edi­tor,

I’m an­gered again by the mis­use of Hairmyres Hos­pi­tal car park.

This is not the first time that I have ar­rived for a hos­pi­tal ap­point­ment to find all the park­ing spa­ces taken, mostly filled by com­muters.

Hav­ing searched for a space for over 10 min­utes, I was forced to leave and park at the Lidl car park across the main road in St James Re­tail Park and run back to the hos­pi­tal to avoid be­ing late for my ap­point­ment.

As I am young and fit I was able to cope with this in­con­ve­nient solution.

How­ever, it angers me to think that pa­tients who may have a se­ri­ous ill­ness or may be el­derly would have to go through the same process.

Some­thing needs to be done to stop this from hap­pen­ing and en­sure that only pa­tients are us­ing the car park for its proper pur­pose.

Per­haps bar­ri­ers could be put in place or some form of con­trolled park­ing. Stephanie Thom­son, via email
