I heve noticed on recent visits to my local Hospital ( Wife's appointment , not me this time ) how much Hospital parking charges have risen . Some years back , when I was visiting for Osto visits it was about £1.20 per hour . It is now £ 1.80 UK ( $ 2.86 US ) . I only want to park my car I have no desire to actually purchase the car park .
It is also potluck if the department / doctor / surgeon/nurse is running on time . Your visit time can also tick over into the 3rd or 4th hours . Thus being a couple of mins late back to your car can cost you an extra full hours parking charge .
I did , however , visit a friend in Hospital recently , at a Town 30 miles from me , & guess what ?? Parking was Free !!
