NHS workers’ cars stripped of parts as they treat patients in hospitals – Mirror Online


Vandals are damaging NHS staff’s cars and stripping them of parts while they treat patients in hospitals.

Four sites have been targeted in south Wales in the past year, including Royal Glamorgan Hospital in Talbot Green, near Llantrisant.

A car bonnet and a grill was stolen from a white Citreon DS3 there on Thursday between 8.30am and 4.00pm, Wales Online says.

In a separate incident, a bonnet was also stolen off a white Ford Fiesta.

Ellie Kinson works at the hospital and was a passenger with her colleague in the Citroen.

She finished work and arrived at the car to see the window smashed so the bonnet could not be opened.

“My colleague parked her car in the car park around 8:30 roughly, and we finished work at approximately 4pm,” the 25-year-old woman said.

  1. Damaging anyones car is disgraceful, but is expressly so soe health staff while within a hospital car park.

    They are most likely charged for that parking, which they should not be and then they have additional expense to pay for the criminal damage to their cars.

    I would hold the hospital responsible for charging to park in an unsafe place. Not only should there be effective CCTV monitoring, it should also be continually monitored so that any potential criminal damage coan be acted upon.

    Alternatively provide secure parking for all of their staff.
