Bid to solve parking problems at Dorchester hospital

First published in News

DORSET County Hospital is to set up a group to look at parking issues facing staff, patients and visitors.

Director of finance and resources Libby Walters told a meeting of hospital governors that a transport group was being set up in response to an increasing number of complaints from patients as well as staff.

The group will look at ways of addressing some of the issues and will include staff representatives and a patient liaison lead.

Mrs Walters said: “We need to sort out some of the parking issues we have got at the moment.”

Public governor Andy Hutchings agreed that there was a need to look at parking issues at the hospital.

He said: “There is nothing more exasperating than coming to this hospital in the middle of the day and trying to find somewhere to park.”

Call Top Deck Parking. They can put up an additional car park deck above the current one. They reckon to build a deck suitable for 100 cars will take 5 days.
So if you want to sort the problem, ring them, get a quote, divide it by the average parking fee paid and if the answer is less than 3 years to pay back, get on and do it.

I like it, but they need to order at least eight decks to prevent the monumental balls -up that goes on there daily!
What a shambles of a place that is!
