Addendum to Guidance to Local Authorities on Assessing the Eligibility of Disabled People in England for Concessionary Bus Travel. This guidance addendum is intended to assist local authorities in using AFCS award letters to assess the eligibility for an ENCTS disabled person's concessionary travel pass. This will reduce the costs incurred by local authorities in undertaking independent medical assessments. Equally importantly, it will also avoid subjecting service personnel and veterans to unnecessary examination and bureaucracy.
