The healthcare emergency badge (HEB) scheme is for organisations who administer emergency care to those who are in need of medical or other care services primarily to people who are housebound.

Organisations within the healthcare services, may apply for a badge and clock (similar to the current disabled blue badge) which allows the holder to park on a yellow line restriction for up to 1 hour providing there is no loading/unloading ban in place at the location. Eligible services include:

  • GPs
  • District Nurses
  • Midwives
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Care workers providing services to people in their own homes


You can apply for a HEB or renewal by completing an application form and sending it us along with the correct fee.
