GOSH Have Listened To Your Complaints And Changed Their WedPage .... By Jim Thomas.

First of all, Taxi Leaks on behalf on the London Taxi Trade, would like to thank GOSH for seeing sense and changing the passage on their website that half upset Taxi drivers who have supported the Hospital's staff and patients for very many years.

We would also like to congratulate every driver who made their feelings public on social media, about the way the trade had been snubbed by Great Ormond Street hospital's website. 

This just goes to show what ordinary drivers can achieve when they act together, "Stronger Together". 

This was a clear and total victory for the ordinary rank and file driver who tweeted, posted on FaceBook, emailed and in certain cases, took the time to make phone calls.

We hope now we can now continue with the great relationship the trade has with the Hospital and Trust. 

Below is the revised paragraphs on the GOSH website today.

Taxis and minicabs.

If you have mobility impairments and have trouble using public transport, you may be able to get subsidised taxi and minicab travel in London. The two schemes are called Taxicard and Capital Call. Please see this link for more information: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/taxis-and-minicabs/taxicard-and-capital-call

London's traditional taxis (black cabs) can be booked in advance, hailed on the street, or picked up from designated taxi ranks. Black Cabs are also disabled friendly as they have access ramps to wheelchairs and will be willing to help those with disabilities. Please see this link for more information: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/taxis-and-minicabs/ 

Other news today from Twitter :

Th GMB been advised by their legal council that they will not get a JR over Uber's four month extension. 

The GMB have now advised @TfLTPH they'll see them in 4 months!

They also said they have written today questioning TFL over the siting of Payment terminals in Taxis and have asked what risk assessment surveys were carried out by TfL before the mandate?

Other news, the ITA have announced a 3 hour demo at midday, on the 9th of June, Parliament Square.
