Four years of parking problems predicted at Wales hospital

27/02/2014
The Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board is considering a number of measures to ease parking at Glan Clwyd Hospital after it was confirmed that four more years of issues were predicted.

The Bodelwyddan hospital has suffered from a rapid increase in parking pressures over the last few months due, in part, to increased clinical activity at the hospital. Building work is also taking place on-site, reducing the number of parking spaces available.

A health board spokesman has predicted that the parking issues could continue for a further four years until the current hospital redevelopment project is complete. He has, therefore, urged the health board to take immediate measures.

He said: "The current situation at Glan Clwyd is totally unacceptable and the health board must take action to remedy the problems, which seem to have arisen since the abolition of car parking charges at the site."

Following complaints, the health board has now confirmed that it is considering changes to visiting and clinic times in order to quell the parking issues. The board has also raised the possibility of short and long stay areas, specific staff car-share parking, and a park and ride service to reduce pressures on the hospital car park.
