The Wheelchair Voucher Scheme is a National Scheme operated by local Wheelchair Services within local NHS Trusts. Service users generally need a referal from their GP to be considered for a wheelchair assessment by their Wheelchair Services Department.

Essington Mobility has approved as a supplier within the West Midlands Regional Health Authority Area for the wheelchair voucher scheme.

Under the scheme the company, which has showrooms in Walsall and Wolverhampton can redeem vouchers which have been issued by the NHS. The vouchers that are issues specify the type of wheelchair that must be supplied and its features assessed as suitable for the user. Wheelchairs may be self propelling or transit.

Clients may choose to upgrade to lightweight aluminium models, which may be easier to transport than the steel wheelchairs generally issued by the NHS.
For more information contact Essington Mobility or your local Wheelchair Services.
