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 means the cashiers and accountants hadnt noticed a shortfall of £7.5 k a WEEK in their cash takings, the security staff were not supervised in any aspect of their cash handling and it took a volunteer to point all of this out.

A hospital spokesmand said that the money could hve paid the slaries of 6 nurses blah blah.- NO IT COULDNT, that wouldnt be allowed so not only do the management of the hospital not know what they are doing they then tell lies to try and deflect their dreadful greed and incompetence into some sympathy for their plight.

 

The obvious point is what was happening to all the money in the first place then if no-one noticed it had gone missing? Why charge for parking in the first place.

 

At the time this was going on the Chief Exec of the hospital was in a court battle with his own trust over plans to cease certain functions and he was forced out of his job. Well, that says all you really need to know.

 

Anyone suffering demands from the parking co there should just claim they paid cash to the the security people and the parking co can find the money in a box behind the telly of their employee. That will see them laughed out of court

That story is outrageous, EB. As you say, people should have noticed what was going on.

The money goes to the trust. The trust usually doesnt question it. The PPC's simply say .. " This is how much came in this month".

 

Thats why more car parks in hospitals are being ran by the trusts themselves.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

so the bean counters knew how much went into the machines but never bothered to follow the cash?

 

many years ago a person at St Mary Hospital Paddington was jailed for stealing well over £100k and gambled it away. he was responsible for banking the money they got from their outside lets so from things like conferences, film work etc. typically the hospital then went loopy over things like overtime payments demanding that the staff claiming them should prove they did the work they were claiming for and all it resulted in was people refusing to do overtime, especially involving the outside events so they lost out again.

 

If they had decent systems in place in the first place none of this would ahve happened. Still doesnt explain why the hospital spokeperson told lies to court about what the money could be used for and that is just as shameful as the rest of this story.
