Safe parking for the staff of Middlemore Hospital

Safe parking for the staff of Middlemore Hospital

We want adequate parking for the staff of Middlemore Hospital (nurses, healthcare assistants, cleaners, orderlies, doctors, technicians, allied health, administrative staff, midwives and everyone else who works at Middlemore) and for this parking to be SAFE!

The staff pay to park here, and need CCTV installed in the 2 staff parking lots to minimise the number of break ins that are occurring and we need security guards in the parking lots.

Why is this important?

The cars of Middlemore Hospital staff are frequently broken into, causing distress and unexpected costs for the staff. This happens in the staff parking lots which are too easily accessible for people from outside the hospital.

Windows are smashed, things are stolen, steering wheels are broken, ignitions damaged. The fact that this mostly happens at night is very stressful for the staff who finish a shift at midnight and then often cannot drive themselves home because their cars have been damaged. There is also not enough parking for all the staff at the hospital.

Reasons for signing

  • Better safe than sorry
  • My car got stolen from the western carpark which supposed to be a secured location with barriers and dozens of security cameras. When I talked to the carpark office after the event, their response was simply a "sorry, we can't do much about it". That is not good enough. We need a carpark that is safe enough so we don't need to have the unnecessary stress about our cars' safety. At the end of the day, this is a big part of what we paid for. WE NEED A MORE SECURED CARPARK!
  • Car parking staff work for an independent company and do not care for the staff whatsoever. They are rude. The car par should be managed directly by DHB staff, and should be safe for all people and at all times of day and night. There should be cctv amd more security provided to monitor and protect vehicles and staff
