There is no problem with parking around there in the middle of the night.

The bays are for ill children in need of urgent treatment, not visitors. It's just having to make the best of a difficult situation. The A&E bays are a massive improvement over having no A&E bays.

 

So no need to have specialist bays just for A and E then.

 

Not sure a parent being called to the bedside of their dying child could accurately be referred to as a "visitor".

That depends if you want to park your car next to A&E so your dying child doesn't have yomp from a few streets away.

 

Seriously, have you heard yourself? It's all about you, you, you.

 

It's certainly not perfect up there, but it's a darned sight better than it was beforehand. The world doesn't just revolve around your problems.

Just to remind you - my actual scenario was :

- middle of the night

-child A has cut finger and is in A and E

-child B has brain tumour is having a seizure,dying and needs parents at bedside on ward

My question was who ought to be given priority for parking?

 

and not once has there been a referencein my posts to myself nor to any problems I may or may not have........so no need for the "you, you, you" .

I parked there for 2 and half hours without a badge, drove off no problem, a week later i went back parked in the same place a ticket wardon came up to and said, 'this stretch is for pass holders only' i asked ' where does it say that ? he then turned and showed me the small notice that stated pass holders only - so i drove off - first time i've ever had any luck - motoring wise !

Hmm

-child A has cut finger and is in A and E

Doesn't sound like an A&E scenario. Cut fingers are normally dealt with by a plaster rather than a trip to A&E? And how do children get cut fingers 'in the middle of the night'?

-child B has brain tumour is having a seizure,dying and needs parents at bedside on ward

Needs? I suspect the child 'needs' trained medics who know what they are doing and 'need' everyone else to be out of the way around the bedside. Parent/s will obviously want to be around and will not be too concerned about where they have parked, but in that scenario there are two options - 1. not be worried about the cost compared to your childs health, or 2. as has been pointed out quite clearly, get the info from the hospital that you were there for those reasons and get the PCN cancelled.

when we went to sign in at the reception nothing was said about a permit to park, we know now. thanks eastbank, good idea if my appeal fails. got to go will be back saturday night all.

 

Sorry to disagree but it clearly states on the wall behind the desk in reception that you need a permit to park in the bay outside.

Yes they probably do, but these parking spaces are for A&E use only. Other parents attend the hospital with a sick child for a outpatient appointment cannot park there.

 

And people use those bays to park in to go in the park as I have seen this happen many times. :mad:

In your actual scenario you'd park across the road outside the hospital because there's nothing else parked there in the middle of the night.

 

In your actual scenario the carer of the child needing A&E for their finger gets to park outside in the reserved bays.

so whats exactly the point then you can only use these bays if your child can be limited to only been ill enough to be there for just two hours never heard anything so silly where do some people get there ideas from is beyond me her child is sick would she be there and parked there if she didn't need to be NO should she be fined because she was on her own and her child dared to be sick for longer than two hours or should my daughter in law blame the hospital for been there too long because they had a change of shift while she was been seen or should this council for once see things in black and white and do the right thing for the people of this city whom things are hard enough for already and get a grip and find a realistic way of dealing with the situation out side the hospital in an appropriate way to help the people who genuinely need to use the bays to park in an emergency instead of hindering and causing them more stress than needed

 

its 4 hours actually. If she read the signs she'd know that.

Firstly a& e reception staff wouldn't say anything as it's not their duty too. It is your responsibility any staff who do mention it do so out of kindness.

Secondly, if your child is in hospital with a brain tumour or any other illness and are so poorly the parents have to be called out, as a parent myself, surely you would never in a million years want to leave your poorly child alone in the hospital anyway??? I certainly wouldn't.

Quite. The scenarios being described by people desperate to prove they're right and the hospital are wrong are getting ever more ridiculous. They're just making themselves look foolish as anyone with half a brain can see that having parking bays for emergencies is better than having no parking bays for emergencies.
