Disabled parking rights for renal dialysis patients

Under current local government legislation, in order to be accepted for the Blue Badge scheme you have to fall into one of the various categories stated in order to be elegible. For instance,if youare registered blind, or have a substantial difficulty in walking or if you receive benefits of various natures. However, for patients undergoing renal dialysis, who often are able bodied but have difficulty in walking variable distances, it is not considered that we fall under the correct criteria and therefore excluded. I think this is wrong and amendments should be made to allow renal patients the option of applying if considered necessary. Please help me to highlight this issue and make a change.

  • N Shastry The current system for Blue Badges is INHUMAN and an Abhorrent abuse aimed at the Disabled!!!

    You are made to wait months even for renewals though you are unable to walk at all and are already suffering just to manage your life!!

    The Councils have the audacity to find faults with the applicants rather than the humane approach which is so essential.

    I have sent messages to Media and the PM, hope someone somewhere can help beyond the Lip Service which is offered!!
