Car Parking at Treatment Centres
At some cancer treatment centres in NSW, parking is so difficult that cancer patients must be left at the entrance while their partner, carer or friend drives some distance to find a park. Parking rates in some hospitals are also very high. This is becoming an extremely stressful issue for both patient and driver. It’s also dangerous for those who are physically or emotionally frail after receiving treatment.
Frustratingly, parking arrangements vary greatly between centres and there is a lack of information about what is available.
Better access to easy parking could immediately improve quality of life for cancer patients, and reduce financial, physical, practical and psychological stress on patients and carers.
Help us ensure all cancer treatment centres make sufficient provision for dedicated spaces and affordable car parking for cancer patients.
Make contact with your local treatment centre and ask them about their arrangements for car parking for cancer patients. Let us know any response so we can track the situation across NSW.
