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.

    Car parking charges are bad for everybody but hit people with disabilities much harder as they are more likely to need frequent hospital visits and more likely to be on a low wage or dependant on benefits.

    I hope that there may be a re-think and be a clearer understanding of the needs/challenges of patients with disabilities.

    Maybe the idiots who think being disabled is fun should break their backs, then they can live on benefits, have a blue badge and see what a wonderful life we live.
