Hospitals Charging Relatives Of Patients Exorbitant Rates For Parking
How do you feel about hospital car park charges? Should they be scrapped altogether? Do you find it sickening that someone who is visiting a sick family member in hospital has to actually pay for the privilege of visiting them and parking in the hospital?
Are you someone who does have a family member in hospital and are fed up that every time you visit, it's costing you money?
