My constituent’s granddaughter has cystic fibrosis and needs regular hospital appointments inside the ULEZ to which her parents drive her in their non-compliant vehicle. Is it right that they do not receive an exemption?

As with the Congestion Charge, NHS patients who are clinically assessed as too ill to travel to hospital appointments by public transport are eligible to claim back any charges from their treating hospital. The hospital treating your constituent’s granddaughter will be able to confirm if they are eligible for the NHS reimbursement, so I would encourage your constituent to discuss this with their hospital.
