hospital parking in wales is free but you still have to get a ticket and the ticket lasts for 4hrs then you have to get another one.
my son in his panic parked in an empty disabled bay at 3am.
the ironic thing is that im a nurse and sometimes work at the hos,staff are up in arms because tey have to keep going off shift to get new tickets, 3times on a 12hr shift,if not you get fined,all because off the council :-(

I think it's the same at most hospitals Suzanne.
My eldest works (generally late shifts or nights) in a maternity ward. There's very litle staff parking, and quite often she has to park in public bays.
A couple of times, she's received a parking ticket as she couldn't get out to renew her ticket.
Well, you can hardly say to a mother to be - hang on, don't push for a couple of minutes, I have to get a ticket.

In sept 2012 my 3 yr old grandson was rushed to hospital by ambulance on a blue light after suffering a bad asthma attack at home,his mum went in the ambulance and my son(his dad)drove behind,my grandson was quite ill with sats of only 70 and dropping and on oxygen in the ambulance,on arriving at the hos my son in his panic parked in the first car park he saw opposite the A E where his son was taken,

5hrs later after his son had been taken to the childrens ward very much better,my son left to go to work.

3 dAYS later son got a parking fine for £60 for parking in an empty disabled car park at 3am in the morning.
my son wrote to the council and explained what had happened,they rejected his appeal and the bill went up to £260. he appealed again a few wks later going higher this time, it was rejected a second time.
three wks ago at 8am two men knocked on the door for our son, bailiffs (i nearly died of shock) they demanded £620 pounds or they would take his car(he needs it for work) he has not got that sort of money,so we had to pay out of our holiday savings(we have not had a holiday for 6 y rs)all of this for a £60 pound hospital carpark fine while your toddler is seriously ill.
so anyone coming to north wales ,who has the bad luck to be taken ill,please watch where your parking during the night at ysbyty gwynedd hospital because the county council will have you for every penny,pay your fine and dont appeal, because they dont care about anything but money. :-(
