Well done on the DLA Smile
The blue badge varies so much from county to county and council to council.
In fact is just plain stupid the way the system works.
Does Orla have any medical equipment? Or need emergency access to a vechicle?
If so they should not be able to refuse at all.
But what concerns me is that going to a doctor you dont know that they dont know a full case history with every child.
For example if an autistic child went to a doctor and was reasonably well behaved that day then they wouldnt see the need for it,

Also it really makes me wonder if they have targets to meet.

And why dont they TRUST our GP's do they know they dont have any mind for targets and just what is best for the patient in many cases?

Hi Daniel and Lucy, I thought it sounds a bloody silly way to do it. liverpool council just asks that your GP supports your request for a badge, now although I live in liverpool I pay my council tax to knowsley metropolitan council, sounds posh, def isnt. We have an appointment fri am with a GP from the council list, stuff like this just causes me more anxiety than i need right now. Yes Orla is on oxygen at the moment so we have to take a cylinder out with us, least it comes with its own shoulder bag very fetching NOT. Yes I was quite pleased about the DLA, I think maybe Connor could have deserved a little more but you know how it is with Aspergers, we could appeal get sent to one of these Doctors who knows nothing about the condition and lose what he already has, I think it was sorted so quickly because they realised we could have been claiming since he was 6 but no one told us. better something than nothing, he's on about learning to drive so it can go towards lessons.
