Wheelchair Service - (NELFT - NHS Foundation Trust)

Opening times: 9am to 4.30pm

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:

  • manual wheelchairs
  • specialist children’s buggies
  • powered wheelchairs for indoor and indoor/outdoor independent use
  • wheelchair accessories
  • wheelchair cushions
  • supportive seating systems for wheelchairs

Our wheelchair service is available to patients registered with GPs in Basildon, Billericay, Wickford and Thurrock.
