'Parking Fiasco' at Borders General Hospital

Staff at Borders General Hospital have taken to Facebook to complain about changes to the hospital car parks.

Two of the six car parks have been changed to short stay, making it easier for patients to park for an appointment.

However, staff say the move has left them with nowhere to park in hospital grounds, and are now finding other areas to park for the day.

The Facebook Group 'BGH Parking Fiasco' says "staff can no longer park in the ground without potentially being fined £40-£90 for coming to work to save lives and look after people".

NHS Borders say there is plenty of parking provision, with 1,000 spaces available for staff and patients.
