One more push? Disabled parking charges at Ashford and St. Peter's Hospitals.

The Board of Ashford and St. Peter's NHS Foundation Trust meets again on Thursday 31st July 2014 at 2-00pm, Chertsey House, Ashford Hospital.

This matters because at the last meeting the board decided that disabled people with blue badges would no longer get free parking.

As you'll remember, the Trust held a 'consultation' meeting at The Hythe, Egham after they took that decision and were faced with a hall full of people who came to register their opposition to the change.

I don't believe that many people are inherently bad and as the Chair told us that the board would reconsider the decision in the light of this consultation we will have to take them at their word.

I do believe that sometimes, you have to help people to make the right decision.

So we need to be there, to help the board do the right thing and to bear witness if they do not.

I've got difficulties being there but I'm going to try and I'd urge others to do the same, even though it's a working day.

We'll see what happens!
