Wheelchair services

If you are experiencing serious difficulties walking, you can apply for a wheelchair service.  

There may also be other options available before you apply for a wheelchair. Take a look at equipment to help at home and help after an illness.

The Wheelchair Service provides assessments, wheelchairs, specialist seating and also runs a short-term loan scheme.

You can contact the service yourself or be referred by a doctor, nurse or social worker.

The Wheelchair Service in Westminster is provided by Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust.
