Applying on behalf of an organisation
Some organisations may be eligible if they care for and transport disabled people, who themselves meet the eligibility criteria for a badge. If you are looking to make an application as an organisation please complete the above process or email usfor an application form.
Applying on behalf of a terminally ill patient
GPs, Consultants and specialist nurses (e.g. palliative care) can submit a fast-track application on behalf of a terminally ill patient with a prognosis of 12 months or less.
Fast-track applications don't require a photo or payment. Once we receive the completed form from the healthcare professional, the badge will be sent to the patient's home address within 15 working days.
