About Me


  1. I request your assistance for dealing with DRP (Dept recovery plus ltd) who are acting on behalf of Empark UK Ltd operating on ground of Mount Vernon Cancer centre. I had a letter on 12th April 2018 that my vehicle was issued with a penalty charge notice on 12th February 2018 for the reason of 'parked in marked ambulance bay'. I disputed the matter in writing that; 1. My vehicle was never parked in the bay 2. No where the location states 'Ambulance bay' rather at one point it says 'Authorised vehicles'. The parking area is used by Ambulances, private hire vehicles (who are
  2. There was an article in todays paper that sums up what is wrong with charging for hospital parking. A private security guard has been jailed for stealing with others over £200k from the parking machines at Wythenshawe Hospital over a period f just under a year. To pick through whty this is a particularly rotten endictment of what is wrong lets start with his employment, he worked for a subcontractor security firm and he was stealing £30k a month in cash he was handling for the parking co/hospital. He was only caught because a student working part time there dobbed him in. Now that me
  3. Just got back from an appointment to find the parking arrangements have yet again changed. It's not my local hospital and I attend maybe once a year. Things used to be simple with a barrier entry/ticket then after your appointment put your ticket in the machine then pay before exiting. Then the barrier got smashed off and they relied on a person taking reg numbers and times giving you ticket to pay in the coffee shop before you exit. Today's visit was most confusing, with people waiting at the ticket machine not sure whether to pay before of when you exit. It appears most peop
  4. Hi all, Just received a Notice to Keeper from Gemini stating that the vehicle broke the following condition, parking in a disabled bay. The registered keeper is disabled and was receiving treatment as the time within the hospital, to the best of knowledge the blue badge was displayed. is it worth appealing given these circumstances? The notice also says that they contacted the keeper recently, they didn't this is the first we have heard of this. Any advice would be appreciated. Date of infringement 18th October 2018 Date of the NTK 21st November 2018 Date Re
  5. On 19th October 2017, my wife (only legally) parked at Aintree Hospital car park. According to the solicitors who have chased me for money a breach of contract notice was placed on the windscreen of the car. They state that this provided 14 days to pay or appeal. They have told me that because they had no registered vehicle details that they requested this from the DVLA. The solicitors have refused to provide the date that they sent this letter to the DVLA or provide a copy of the letter or DVLA response. On 28th November the solicitors state that a pre-action letter was sent and provide
  6. Hi, I would be very grateful if I could receive any advice concerning the parking charge notice I've received on Monday. I've filled this up : For PNC's received through the post [ANPR camera capture] please answer the following questions. 1 Date of the infringement 21/05/2018 2 Date on the NTK [this must have been received within 14 days from the 'offence' date] 31/05/2018 3 Date received 4/06/2018 4 Does the NTK mention schedule 4 of The Protections of Freedoms Act 2012? [y/n?] Yes 5 Is there any photograp
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/feb/28/gps-offered-cash-to-refer-fewer-people-to-hospital I thought GPs were already finding it hard to cope with the workload? This sounds an odd way to try and fix the system. HB
  8. Oh dear, I have spent from 8 am this morning till 3 pm at Manchester Eye Hospital. I parked in a Disabled Bay, correctly displaying my blue badge. I could not drive because of the eye drops which were not wearing off - giving me extremely blurred vision, so at 12 noon my daughter came to pick me up until my vision improved. At 3 pm she drove me back to retrieve my car only to find a Parking Notice Enclosed stuck on the windscreen. When opening it it states that 'Blue Badge Not Displayed'????? I find this rather odd as my badge was clearly displayed. My daughter went

  11. Hello September 2016 I visited our local hospital purchased a ticket and left before the ticket expired. . Although this was after my dads death I parked in the same place i had done loads of times whilst visiting my father who was in and out due to this illness until he succumbed to the disease. This was 08/09/2016 whilst visiting the fracture clinic on the 25/11/2016 I received a parking charge notice saying I had parked on private land without appropriate permit/authorisation. Luckily I had left the ticket in my door though it was two months after scanned it
  12. Hi all, My wife has got a Legion Group PCN for parking a courtesy vehicle in the carpark at the hospital where she works without moving her permit from her own vehicle. If this weren't a hire vehicle I'd tell her to ignore, but I'm worried Hertz will hit her with a bill if we don't sort something out. We've looked at the appeals process and I'm unsure whether to complete it, if so, how. It asks for an address, which we'd rather not give, it also asks whether she was Driver or Keeper. Could anyone advise please?
  13. Hi and thank you in advance for your help, I need advice on the following parking issue: I arrived at a hospital car park and after waiting along time in the queue I got in but found no space. As my appointment was now past I could not wait any longer and decided to park the car in a non-designated space but made sure there was no obstruction to car park traffic. After my appointment (40min) I paid for my parking ticket (£1) when i returned to the car i found an EXCESS CHARGE NOTICE attached to the wind screen. The reason for the ticket is obstructive parki
  14. I have been having a protracted argument with BMI hosiptal regarding a charge for non attendance of a consultation. They invited me to attend a consultation by letter but I did not receive the letter. They are now demanding £99 and have handed it over to ICON collections I have also had a letter today from PJH Solicitors stating I must pay ICON by cheque immediately. I would like to know the following:- 1. Can they charge £99 for a missed appointment 2. I told them I didn't receive the letter but they say that it was sent so that is my pro
  15. Hi, I hope someone can help me with a unique query. I need to get in touch with a particular surgeon that operated on another patient who was admitted to the same ward as me - this is for a very rare and specialist medical issue that I also developed. Unfortunately, I cannot remember the surgeon's name as this was a few years ago, but i should be able to identify the name of the surgeon from a list of names if I received a list of all surgeons operating at that hospital during the time when I was admitted there. Is this something I could ask using the Freedom Of Information A
  16. Not been on here for a while. Received a NTO five months after parking in a hospital. There was no pcn on the car so was surprised to get a NTO five months later. I have looked about this site and fired off a couple of emails which I will copy below. Can anyone help? Further to your letter dated 3rd October and request for payment. Please note that there was no PCN on the car and this is the first I am aware. The incident referred to is more than 56 days prior to the receipt of your notice. As such you have not complied with the requirements of the Pr
  17. Hi, i'm a newby on this forum and need a bit of advice re everyone's friends TPS. I have had two run-ins with them in the last month at my place of work. The NHS trust I work for have been using use TPS for their parking for about 6 years with staff paying a monthly parking charge which comes directly out of our salary. The first incident was a simple case of my parking pass falling out of my windscreen and ending up on the car floor. They issued a “Parking Charge” for failure to display a valid parking pass. I have appealed this one and await their initial reply.

The hospital wrote to me and said the DPA request I sent was valid and that it would tae them 40 days to respomd.

  20. Hi i want to request medical records from both my local NHS Trust and my GP. Would this result in two different charges or can you relate them in some way to make it all one request? Many thanks.
  21. Good morning All, I bought parking ticket for duration of my hospital appointment at General Hospital in Manchester. Upon return to my car I notice PCN stuck on windscreen from Civil Enforcement Ltd for reason 'parked in incorrect zone'. I find this strange because last time I attended said hospital for same medical reason I parked in the same zone, bought a ticket to cover my stay and no problem. Any advice on how to challenge this would be appreciated, thanks in advance guys
  22. Please, could any one kindly advice me. I used to be an employee of the Bucks hospitals (NHS) Trust working at the Wycombe hospital. I have now retired but they retained me as a bank staff helping them out when they are really short of staff. I occasionally work there at weekends and nights when parking is not a problem. Now UKPC which recently took over the parking management are giving me these parking charges which I feel are rather unreasonable. They recently gave me a parking charge while I was parked and inside the laboratory working. I just find it
  23. My friends DH is 60 and has early dementia, he is currently in hospital due to dehydration and bed sores and has been doing well, apparently due to his dementia and the fact that he is in a situation where he is scared - IE in hospital and not with his wife he 'apparently' attacked two nurses and drew blood. They have taken him from the care of his wife and put a DOL on him. He is NOT violent with her, its the situation he is in that may have caused him to lash out. My friend is terrified that he will be taken away from her, she can cope with him at home whilst I appreciate that
  24. From the BBC. Some hospital trusts in England are making more than £3m a year from car parking fees, Freedom of Information (FOI) requests have shown. Of more than 90 trusts that responded to FOI requests, half are making at least £1m a year, the news agency Press Association (PA) found. The Patients Association said the charges were "morally wrong". But many trusts defended their revenues, saying some or all of the money was put back into patient care. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-35157425 HB
  25. Hi. New here I guess I am here because of the obvious reason, and probably the same reason a lot of people are here. Finished my shift at work today to find a bit of paper stuck to my car. First let me say, I do not intend paying the "fine", no matter what it takes. Here are the basics: Parking Charge Notice Issued by Vinci Park services. Breach code: 04 - Parked upon Double yellow lines/hatched or kerb marked areas A payment of £40 is due within 28 days If payment received within 14 days a reduced charge of £20 will be accepted.
