Blue badge applications – success in east London

  • Latest news

After concerns raised by Waltham Forest LMC, the local council are now telling blue badge applicants not to contact their GP to support their application.

The letter states:

“Please note your GP should not be asked for specific information for your mobility application and an appointment should not be made solely for the purpose of obtaining medical letters/reports for your application, but you should provide existing documentation in line with your routine medical appointments. If you no longer have copies of medical letters or reports, the practice reception can assist.”

You can read the full letter here.
