Mobility services includes an orthotics service, wheelchair service and a wig service for oncology patients and those with alopecia. They have been operating since 1991. These services are provided for adults and children in acute, out-patient and community settings across a range of locations. We also have engineers who repair wheelchairs and this department is owned and managed by the trust.
The service has recently re-located to building 16, which is near to zone C entrance and is open Monday to Thursday 8:30am to 4:30pm and Friday 8:30am to 4pm.
