- ongoing review and assessment of mobility needs for both powered and non-powered wheelchairs
- wheelchair and pressure distribution cushions and postural seating systems to use in wheelchairs (based on clinical need)
- pressure mapping assessments for identified wheelchair users and advice on pressure care
- a repair and maintenance service for people with our equipment
Wheelchair and buggy provision is determined following assessment, clinical need and in relation to the eligibility criteria for the provision of equipment.
We are unable to provide wheelchairs for short-term use; however we can offer advice to users regarding temporary loan.
We do not supply scooters, or supply powered wheelchairs solely for outdoor use.
You may be interested to know that we have a small range of wheelchair and buggy accessories available to buy at each location (items which are not funded by the NHS).
How to access the service
You will need to be initially referred by your GP or healthcare professional that can use the forms below:
Once your referral has been received we will contact you to arrange an appointment for an assessment of your wheelchair and seating needs.
If you are already known to the wheelchair service, you can refer yourself back to the service as/ when required. You can do this by telephone, or ask someone to contact us on your behalf.
Please note that we have a waiting list for both assessment and review appointments.
