Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) charge:

The Trust is within the expanded Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). This means if your vehicle does not meet the ULEZ emissions standards, you will need to pay a daily charge to drive within the ULEZ. You can find out more, including whether your vehicle meets ULEZ standards, on the TfL website.

As an NHS patient, you may be able to claim a reimbursement for the ULEZ charge if you are clinically assessed as unable to travel to and from an appointment on public transport and:

  • Have a compromised immune system, or
  • Require regular therapy or assessments, or
  • Need regular surgical intervention.

If you believe that you meet the above criteria, mention this at the reception desk when you book in for your appointment. If you use an automated check in for your appointment, please mention it to the clinician at the start of your appointment. They will then carry out your assessment, using this form. Printed copies of this form will be available for you at the hospital.
