Hello Rosered

I had to travel to my nearest city for mine which was about 12 miles.

They do cover travel expenses, however i drove and the car park cost me £13 but they would only give me £6 for parking (plus some money for petrol) At first they were only going to give me £3 for parking until i argued a bit. I told them the car park and they had a list of its prices. They filled in a form after the medical and said did i want it paying in my bank.

It has annoyed me that i lost £6 in parking. I got there a bit early because i didnt know where it was and i normally tend to get lost and stressed out but they would only pay parking from when the appointment started.
