There is no parking made available for cancer patients at the Dr.H.Bliss Murphy cancer clinic.

What can the Cancer clinic do?

• Provide a designated parking area for cancer patients
with enough spaces( we are looking for 25 spots). Use a boomgate and/or a
permit system to make sure only eligible patients can
park there, and enforce it. Cars can be towed and tickets issued just like the blue zones.

• Use a permit system such as windscreen stickers,
swipe cards or dashboard passes, with expiry dates
or color coding to show patients with current

Having a designated parking area close to the hospital for cancer patients who are receiving treatment is vital.We are fighting the biggest battle of our lives and having the stress of parking should not be one of them.

 I was late for an appointment at the cancer clinic because it took me 45 minutes to find a place to park.The long walk to the entrance of the hospital was exhausting.I see a lot of people who are receiving treatment at the Dr.H.Bliss Murphy cancer clinic and many are seniors.This parking problem has to be addressed because it has been a problem for these patients for years.Designated parking is needed for cancer patients and those spots need to be close to the entrance of the cancer clinic.

I started this petition because many cancer patients talked about the problem with the parking and how frustrating it is to find a place to park going to the Dr.H.Bliss Murphy cancer clinic.

I hope the hospital can designate an area for cancer patients close to the clinic.It would make this journey more easier on the patients.


Another part of this advocacy we have voiced our concern is Smoking.It should be prohibited from the cancer clinic and the HSC.People are smoking in the entrances and then throwing cigarette butts to the ground.Take a walk in front of the cancer clinic one day and you will see just that...A beautiful garden there but sadly many butts on the ground. Even though there is an announcement stating smoking is not permitted on the grounds people still are doing just that.

Hospitals and clinics should be Smoke free zones.
