This is an unusual service working within both the social and medical models. We assess children and adults of all ages with long term and complex needs and liaise with many other services. Our team consists of occupational therapists, physiotherapists, technical instructors and rehabilitation engineering staff, supported by administrators. The wheelchair service works within agreed criteria.
Following assessment, equipment may be provided including:
specialist children’s buggies
powered wheelchairs for indoor and indoor/outdoor independent use
supportive seating systems for wheelchairs
Our wheelchair service is available to patients registered with GPs in Havering
The provision of powered wheelchairs would not be considered for patients who are able to walk or self propel a manual wheelchair indoors. The provision of powered wheelchairs is for outdoor use only, and the provision of electric scooters is also outside the remit of the wheelchair service.
