Welcome.

Are you sure it is so restrictive about what is available?

Adult Wheelchair and Seating Service

The adult service deals with people 18 years and over.

The Wheelchair and Seating Service has a fleet of wheelchairs and supportive seating that meets the clinical needs of a wide range of users.

Wheelchairs – can be self-propelled or attendant-propelled and are available in a wide range of sizes. Some are available with running brakes to assist carers.

Energy-efficient wheelchairs – for users who propel themselves for a significant part of the day and who can control the stability of the wheelchair, these wheelchairs offer a more efficient means of mobility than the standard wheelchair.

Electrically powered wheelchairs – available in both indoor-only and indoor/outdoor models for users who are unable to propel themselves and unable to walk who can safely control a powered chair. Assessment for this type of equipment will usually involve a test of driving ability. Copies of nationally-agreed eligibility guidelines are available from the clinical staff.
