Parking is ridiculous, got here about half one for a 2pm appointment, drove round for a hour, only space I found was on double yellow lines, fine incoming nee doubt, wankers
Park next to the GUM clinic. There’s somewhat of a stigma parking near there and the last area to fill up.
As an initiative to get people out of their cars it works though. If I didn’t have to pay to park at work, it would almost make it economic for me to drive. I use public transportI work at the QE in Gateshead and pay £17.50 a month for parking. Happy to do it but I'm a firm believer that nobody should have to pay to park at work, especially when I'm not guaranteed a space. It's also ridiculous patients have to pay for parking too.
NHS need to seriously look at the state of parking across almost every site. It's tragic.
I was gonna say get a long term disability because it's worth it for the free parking, but you struggle to find any empty disabled bays at Sunderland Royal as well.
