Wheelchair services

Our team of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, assistant practitioners and support staff provide a wheelchair and special seating service for adults and children over 30 months who have a permanent restriction (more than six months) to their mobility, due to ill health, disability or are frail.

You will be referred to us by either your GP, consultant, therapy staff, nurse or social services staff. We will provide you with an assessment and provide, maintain and review your wheelchair.

Have gained my independence back and it is lovely to be out and about again with my family.

Health professionals should make their referral in paper format (wheelchair specific referral form) directly into the department.
