Organ donor register
When you register for an e+ card, you are offered the chance to register your details with the Organ Donation and Transplantation service at the same time.
You will be asked to give your consent for the council to share your personal data with the NHS Blood and Transplant Service.
Your e+ card will show the organ donor logo.
The NHS Blood and Transplant Service will register you according to the preferences you select. They will write to you directly, sending an organ donor card and notification of the details they have registered.
If you later decide you wish to remove yourself from the register, you will need to contact NHS Blood and Transplant directly.
Prepaid debit card
e+ has worked with the council’s Adult Social Care Team to develop a new e+ prepaid debit card which is now issued to people receiving Direct Payments. These are the first prepaid cards of their kind, working for council e+ services alongside being secure chip and PIN bank payment debit cards.
Each cardholder has a personalised online bank account enabling them to set up regular payments to carers, arrange direct debits, make online purchases and add their own contributions to the account. Council payments made through the e+ prepaid card mean individuals who need help can be supported to manage their funds better.
R-bus community transport journeys are now being managed through the passenger’s e+ account. R-bus passengers can check their current journey balance online at any time and ensure they are in credit.
See the R-bus page for more information.
BFC My Choice
BFC My Choice applicants reaching the top of the housing register who have no photo ID and no address proof, can be issued with an e+ card through the housing team.
When bidding for properties the cardholder can show their e+ card to potential landlords proving they are the person eligible to sign the lease.
