Wheelchair Service

The Wheelchair Service is a therapist-led wheelchair assessment, prescription and provision service. 

Our aim is to enable independent mobility within the home and local community through the provision of wheelchairs and associated pressure relief and postural care.

The Wheelchair Service provides manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, specialist paediatric buggies and wheelchair seating solutions, pressure relieving wheelchair cushions, and wheelchair postural support to clients who meet the provision criteria.

The service offers a voucher system to promote choice. This scheme enables individuals who have been assessed and who meet the criteria for provision to access the wider range of wheelchairs in the private market.

The team works closely with wheelchair suppliers and support services to help clients achieve maximum benefit from their wheelchair.

The equipment provided by the service is repaired and maintained free of charge.
