I applied and failed for both, The freedom pass and DLA despite having numerous health problems. With freedom passes Southwark council have not exactly been generous anyway. I have appealed to both, but god knows how long thats going to take and even if I win my case or not.

I wonder if this has happened to anyone else here?

when I originally applied for DLA I was turned down, but appealed and got it. The appeals procedure does take a long time(I don't know why)but they will backdate the payments to when you first applied.

As for bus passes, it is the Government that sets the criteria (Transport Act 2000).

I hope you hear positive news very soon.
