Bedfordshire and Luton Wheelchair Service

The key purpose for our service is to clinically assess and provide appropriate wheelchairs and associated equipment (posture and pressure care) to clients with a long-term mobility need, (over 6 months). The Wheelchair Service will continue to support the clients and maintain any issued equipment. Having the most appropriate mobility equipment can improve quality of life, facilitate independence, enable access into the wider community and reduce the risk of developing deformity for our clients.

The wheelchair service provides training for the community prescribers of basic wheelchairs for adult clients that are not totally wheelchair dependant. We offer specialist assessment for adult clients that are totally wheelchair dependent, all children and bariatric clients. We run a bespoke seating service for clients with complex postural needs that require made to measure / moulded seating. We are able to pressure map as part of a specialist pressure care assessment and provide a range of complex cushions. We work closely with seating companies and hold regular clinics for equipment trail or review.

Each new episode of care is completed within 18 weeks of referral and this is normally sufficient for most clients, however if something takes longer to resolve we would continue to work with the client until the clinical situation required. We accept referrals for review throughout the time the client has the equipment, and have an approved repairer contract to ensure that the wheelchairs are properly maintained while it is on issue.

We currently review all bespoke seating clients annually. We would like to offer a review service for all children and powered wheelchair users but we are currently not commissioned to do this.

Preparing for Adulthood

Preparing for Adulthood - Transition (means “change”)
It is what happens when you start thinking about what you want to do when you leave school and what support you may need.
It is a time to look at what you want in life, and plan the services you may need to support you. Planning your transition starts happening when you are about 13 years old. A good transition means that you will be as independent as possible when you are an adult. It is important that you know about what will happen and how all of the different changes will affect you.
