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.

We provide specialist clinical support for families to enable them to care for their child in their own home, to avoid unnecessary hospital admission and promote high quality family centred care.
1. Skilled Care of any nursing procedure that can safely be undertaken at home if a child or young person requires a specific clinical procedure for example intravenous, subcutaneous, intramuscular medication. Other examples include wound care and gastrostomy care.
2. Symptom Control Management if the child or young person requires a period of regular assessment and monitoring of symptoms, for example blood pressure monitoring or oxygen monitoring. The CCN's also support oxygen dependent babies, children/ young people at home and children with complex medical needs and work together with a range of professionals to assess plan and deliver care to maximise opportunities.
3. Education - if the family requires training to enable them to continue providing support and ongoing care, for example enteral feeding, suctioning and administration of medication.
4. Acting as advocate for child and family, identifying a Lead Professional in conjunction with family.
5. Acting as resource for other professionals to the right person, at the right time care for the child/young person in the right way.
The aim of our service is to support children with complex medical continuing healthcare needs to live within their family home and fulfil their potential as individuals. This includes supporting them in a variety of settings in the community for example, schools and nurseries. Without the support of the team many families would find it impossible to continue to care for their child at home.
