Eligibility for a Blue Badge due to a terminal illness

The Department for Transport regulations states “Local authorities may wish to consider having a fast-track application process for people who have a terminal illness that seriously limits their mobility, in order to make the final weeks of their life easier”. You may apply for a fast track Blue Badge if you have a terminal disease that falls into this category.

One of the ways to prove that to us is to provide a completed DS1500 form, signed by your doctor or consultant, which clarifies the severity of the prognosis, as stated above. Or you may get an appropriate organisation such as a Hospice, Macmillan’s etc., to stamp the front of your application, confirming that your prognosis is as serious as stated as above.
