Hertfordshire Wheelchair Service
What service we provide
The service provides assessments for people with mobility and other postural problems, supplying wheelchairs, pressure care cushions and accessories for wheelchairs.
Assessments are held in a variety of locations e.g. clinic, at home, at a day centre or school.
When to request a re-assessment?
You can use these checklists to highlight any warning signs for when to request a reassessment. It may be that you need to just check your equipment over or review your sitting position, but these should help guide you when to seek further advice from one of our Therapists.
How to refer into the service
Any qualified healthcare professional can refer to the service e.g. GP, district nurse, physiotherapist and occupational therapist.
All referrals will be looked at by one of our occupational therapists and prioritised according to the Hertfordshire Wheelchair Service specification and criteria.
This may result in direct prescription and supply of equipment to the client.
Alternatively a face-to-face assessment may be required, which may be held at a variety of locations.
