    Immediately after the introduction of the national scheme which caused a tightening up of the issue of blue badges I applied for my wife and had a refusal because she went into hostess mode and passed the basic walk test.

    I appealed using all the usual arguments based on dementia, the appeal was rejected even though it had a GP recommendation attached.
    My successful solution was:

    Well done, your perseverance paid off; i'll keep trying but free time is liquid gold and a shame the government add to our burden.

    Hey Nitram
    Thank you for the advice. I got our doctor to write a letter + medical history and today got the blue badge on the second try.
    Seems if you have Alzheimer's they make you jump the extra hoop hoping you will give up!
    Appreciate your help, thanks again.
