Community equipment, wheelchair, assistive technology and home improvement agency services to the NHS and local authorities are supplied by Millbrook Healthcare.

In order for a wheelchair to be provided by Millbrook Healthcare, you will need to be assessed. A referral will need to be made by your GP or a registered healthcare professional.

The service provides assessments for people with mobility and other postural problems, supplying wheelchairs, pressure care cushions and accessories for wheelchairs.  An appointment will be made for you to have a full clinical assessment of your mobility needs, including pressure care, by a qualified occupational therapist or therapy assistant.

Assessments are held in a variety of locations e.g. clinic, at home, at a day centre or school.

How to refer into the service
Any qualified healthcare professional can refer to the service e.g. GP, district nurse, physiotherapist and occupational therapist.

All referrals will be looked at by one of our occupational therapists and prioritised according to the Hampshire Wheelchair Service specification and criteria.

This may result in direct prescription and supply of equipment to the client.

Alternatively a face-to-face assessment may be required, which may be held at a variety of locations.
