Wheelchair and Special Seating Services (NHS Doncaster)
The Service provides assessment and provision of wheelchairs to people with a permanent walking or mobility problem (over 6 months) or a temporary mobility problem (Short Term Loan). Clients must be registered with a Doncaster GP.
A wheelchair can be requested by your GP or therapist with the approval of a GP. A range of chairs are provided for people of all ages. A Posture and Mobility Therapist will assess needs, preferably in the clinic. Clinics are held daily. The wheelchairs are adapted to meet the client's individual needs if required. The Service provides manual and powered wheelchairs, special seating and pressure care cushions for use in the wheelchair. They also maintain all wheelchairs provided by the Service. They do not provide powered wheelchairs for just outdoor use or electric scooters.
Eligibility: Patients registered with NHS Doncaster GP.
