Community Equipment Service

​What do we do?

We deliver equipment to people and their carers living in the community who meet agreed eligibility criteria, or who need to be nursed at home. The equipment is designed to aid daily living, support the nursing needs of people in their own homes or help with discharge from hospital, and is provided as a free loan for as long as it's needed.

What types of equipment are we able to supply?

Aids to daily living:

  • toileting (for example raised toilet seats and toilet surrounds)
  • bathing equipment (for example bath lifts, shower chairs
  • kitchen equipment (for example trolleys and perching stools.
  • lounge equipment (for example chair raisers

Nursing:

  • pressure relief (for example dynamic air mattresses and foam mattresses)
  • hospital beds
  • commodes
  • moving and handling equipment (for example hoists, slings and slide sheets)

How do I access the service?

You'll be assessed by a health or social care professional such as an Occupational Therapist or District Nurse who will request the most suitable equipment. We'll then phone you to arrange a suitable delivery day.

What about servicing and repairs?

We service electrical equipment every year and will contact you to arrange the service. However, if your equipment has broken down or is faulty please contact us on 01924 327131.

What if I no longer need the item?

If you no longer need the equipment please contact us on 01924 327131. Alternatively you can contact your health or social care contact and they will inform us. If you wish you can return the equipment direct to our equipment store Monday to Friday between 8.30am and 4.30pm.
