Stung by hospital car parking
LIKE many, I too have been stung by hospital parking charges throughout Leicestershire and Warwickshire. It wouldn’t be so bad if they had the right capacity and I wonder how many late/missed appointments have arisen as a result. When I challenged one hospital, I was told that their charges were completely in line WITH OTHER HOSPITALS – a selfdeclared cartel.
When I pointed out that the rates were well in excess of typical municipal charges, a more reasonable benchmark, the dialogue abruptly ceased. R Collingwood
