Wheelchair Repair Service
The West Sussex Wheelchair service provides wheelchairs to people who have a permanent disability and whose ability to walk is therefore permanently restricted.
The wheelchair service will loan a wheelchair to anyone who has a long term mobility problem and is classified as unable, or virtually unable to walk indoors or outdoors. Short-term wheelchair loans (less than 6 months) are not provided.
AJM Healthcare is the service’s wheelchair maintenance contractor, providing a repair service for wheelchairs issued by the service.
The service provides assessments for people with mobility and other postural problems, supplying wheelchairs, pressure care cushions and accessories for wheelchairs.
Assessments are held in a variety of locations e.g. clinic, at home, at a day centre or school.
