Equipment prescriptions

Aids to daily living such as walking frames, trolleys, perching stools and raised toilet seats, help millions of people remain independent at home.

For these smaller items of equipment we have introduced equipment prescriptions to give the user more control and choice over the equipment needed.

Following an assessment, and if eligible, we will give an equipment prescription to be exchanged at an accredited retailer of the users choice, items are issued free of charge. Accredited retailers could be a local mobility shop or pharmacy. The user will own the prescribed equipment which should be kept in good working order.
