Another inaccessible hospital

Yesterday I took the day off to go to a routine hospital check-up. When I got there I found all the inner car parks full. The rest were further away than I can walk.

I drove around a couple of times but without anywhere to wait I couldn't stop. So I had no choice but to turn around and go home.

This is the second hospital I've had occasion to abandon due to inaccessibility. It would have cost me a lot to take a taxi. Buses are not practical for me.

What is it going to take for them to listen? Do they need to be sued before they make it as easy to get treatment for disabled patients as non-disabled ?

Why can't they even run a shuttle from the outer car parks when busy?
