Wheelchair Service

Dorset Wheelchair Service provides mobility equipment to residents of all ages who have a GP in Dorset. Those clients must have a long term need for a wheelchair to increase their mobility and independence.

Every client will be assessed indiviudally by the service or an accredited professional in line with the eligibility criteria. Where appropriate, an individual will be supplied with a wheelchair/buggy from within our NHS approved range.

If an eligible client chooses to purchase outside of our approved NHS range, there is a voucher scheme whereby clients can top up the funding approved by the service.

Chairs are adapted if necessary to meet an individual’s specific needs and appropriate seating is prescribed and provided. This particularly applies to children, whose equipment must allow for growth and any individual postural needs.
