    Hospital Parking fine

    Hospital Parking fine 3rd Dec 17 at 10:20 PM
    So I have received 2 parking fines from the hospital, one I was aware of and not the other, from May and June. ( I am a staff member).
    I have now been sent letters from ZZPS, informing me of parking fines I need to pay. I had previously read on the forum to not respond to the letters.
    I have now received a letter from QDR solicitors informing me that I need to pay a further £110 or be taken to court. As I have recently moved address these have only just been opened.
    I am very worried about these, should I pay these fines or ignore the letters?
    FYI I had only parked on the hospital ground, as there had been no street parking and had no other choice.
    Any help will be very much appreciated.

    reply and rebut and also inform them of the correct address for service of papers too

    treat the paperwork received as an LBC for now

    also complain to your HR RESOURCES dept and get them to cancel these tickets as per the NHS guidelines

    Private Parking ticket? check the 2 sticky threads by coupon-mad and crabman in the Parking Tickets, Fines & Parking Board forum for the latest advice or maybe try pepipoo or C.A.G. or legal beagles forums if you need legal advice as well because this parking forum is not about debt collectors or legal matters per se

    So should I email my parking department of the hospital and inform them of why I had to park on Hospital grounds. Or should I email zpss limited, or QDR solicitors appealing these tickets?

    Many thanks againn.

    contact the hospital but tell them NOT to pass on your complaint to anyone else outside of the trust (not the parking company etc) - you want them to cancel the charge

    IGNORE zzps , they are merely debt collectors and powerless

    reply and rebuttal to go to the solicitors , along with the correct service address , asking them to pass on the correct details to the parking company as well

    Complain to your parking department in writing. Whether by email or letter, you are in a better position than us to judge that.

    As Redx advises in post #3, treat the QDR letter as a LBC and respond robustly as per the example in the NEWBIES FAQ sticky, post #2.

    Ignore ZZPS, they are just debt collectors.
    We cannot provide you with a silver bullet to get you out of this. You have to be in for the long run, and need to involve yourself in research and work for you to get rid of this. It is not simple. We will help, but can't do it for you.
