Well, my three year Blue badge is up for renewal.
2010 - filled in the form online, quick chat with my GP, badge arrived in the post.
2013 - directed to Government website which said it would take 15 minutes to fill in the form.
I consider myself quite well educated - it took me about 3 hours!!! Hunting out badge, driving licence, passport, little red book with all my symptoms/dates/appointments in, telephone numbers of medical people who look after me, prescription list. etc etc.
Have eventually sent off the form and still have to get some passport photos, photocopy passport and driving licence and get them verified by an important friend.
Glad they’re being a bit more careful with who gets a badge but as I don’t automatically qualify I think the fact that I manage to fill everything in entitles me to one!!!
Good luck anyone else,
