Letter to the Editor - August 26: No carpark confusion

I WAS disappointed to read of the confusion about the new parking at the health campus from one of our Leukaemia Foundation drivers.

I am also a volunteer driver for the Leukaemia Foundation and drove on the Tuesday, the day before Trevor.

I was the first of our drivers to encounter the new system, which our co-ordinator had briefed us on.

I had absolutely no problems getting in and out of the campus.

I did not have a card for the Leukaemia Foundation car until the end of my shift, but I drove my car in and took a ticket, and because it was less than 30 minutes, there is no charge.

I then continued to do the same during the day when bringing patients to oncology and returning them home.

At the end of the day, oncology gave me the card to be used with the Leukaemia Foundation car and told me on my next rostered day take a ticket when I bring my car in and keep it in my pocket until I am bringing the car back at the end of my shift.

I then take the ticket to oncology. They validate the ticket and I have 30 minutes to use it.

The other point I would like to make is it was great to drive through the campus in the middle of the day and see plenty of spaces in the visitors' car park.

Congratulations to the Health Campus team.
