Health and social care permit or voucher
Permits are now e-permits
Health and social care permits are now e-permits. Vouchers will still need to be displayed in your vehicle and will be delivered within 4 working days of purchase.
Paper permit holders should continue to display their permit until it expires.
If you are applying for a change of vehicle or address related to your permit, an e-permit will be issued.
It’s quicker and easier to get your car covered with e-permits:
- start your permit today with no need to display anything in your vehicle
- Civil Enforcement Officers can check your permit is valid using your vehicle registration number
Health and social care permits and vouchers are available to staff working for organisations providing essential health and social care services to Hackney residents.
Permits are issued to applicants spending at least 30% of their time on the road visiting the community, working in medical or social care and working for a specifically named institution.
- Homerton University Hospital
- City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group
- East London Foundation NHS Trust
Council staff and private companies are not eligible.
Create an account today to get reminders about when your permit is due to expire, and quickly and easily renew your permit or buy vouchers.
