I wonder if anyone can help me? I am suffering quite badly at the moment with my asthma and as such am using my car to take my son to school and then get to work (3 mile trip one way). the company I work for now have told me I have no right to have a staff permit (for which I pay 12 quid a month). As i live within a mile and a half radius of the work place. I explained that I am the sole carer for my child and need drop him off and sometimes my asthma wont let me walk up the stairs much less the 800 metres they stipulate. Never the less I was denied a permit despite GP intervention. Does anyone have any info that would help me? Who do I work for...........the NHS. Go on you can laugh.
