what a nightmare I had today visiting very large city hospital. Firstly even with a blue badge I had to park half a mile away, leaving my newly invalided dh in car I set off to find a wheelchair, only to find there were absolutely none available. I was then told I would have to go round again and drop him at the door then go and park, very difficult as poor dhcan barely stand. After a conflab I was told to go around the back of the hospital and in the back way where we firstly got lost. When I at last found the right entrance yet again there were no wheelchairs, I had to half support and half carry him inside by this time he and I were both stressed to the eyeballs and nearly in tears. The staff were lovely when eventually someone realised our plight but surely one of the biggest hospitals in england should have this available.
