Am I eligible?
To qualify for our services you must be resident in the UK, registered with a GP within the AWC area and have a long term mobility impairment classified as unable to or virtually unable to walk.
NHS wheelchairs are supplied primarily to improve mobility in the home and are prescribed for your specific clinical needs. We do not:
- provide wheelchairs solely for school or work use or in place of static seating
- supply scooters of any description
- supply for children who could be accommodated in a standard retail buggy unless supportive seating is needed
- supply equipment for temporary needs or on short term less than 6 months. If this is what you need we can supply a list of suppliers from whom you can hire a wheelchair
