Say NO to Blue Badge Parking Charges at Dewsbury Hospital

untitled.pngFrom the 1st September the Mid Yorks NHS Trust will start charging disabled blue badge holders to park at it's hospitals including Dewsbury & District Hospital.

 

Paula Sherriff MP for Dewsbury has launched a campaign to call on the Chief Executive of the Mid Yorks NHS Trust to scrap these unfair charges.

 

These changes are not fair. Disabled patients often find it much harder to use public transport, and may also have to attend hospital appointments more frequently.

 

Please sign Paula's petition to call on Mid Yorks NHS Trust to scrap these unfair charges.

    I can understand a parking charge for non disabled people, in order to prevent the car parks from being abused (although perhaps there is an argument regarding the size of the charges). It doesn’t seem to make any sense charging disabled people though. I am sure there are a lot of disabled people that rely on driving to the hospital, and have no choice but to park there. This seems irresponsible to point of becoming cruel.

    This is a petty charge raising little money but a lot of ill will. Why hit people already disadvantaged with yet another misfortune. Trust show a bit of humanity and humility!

    I only wanted help but have given up. I have never before seen such a load of rubbish as trying to get in touch with an MP. You’d think they were doing us a favour instead of freeloading on our backs. To Hell with it
