How to order a wheelchair
If you wish to hire a wheelchair for a short period, please contact Capitol Mobility on 0121 705 5255 and quote "Age UK wheelchair hire".
If you require a wheelchair for a longer period, you should contact your GP, Occupational Therapist, Consultant or Physiotherapist who, if you qualify, will refer you to the wheelchair service operated by NHS Community Services.
NHS Community Services also operate a voucher scheme which enables you to purchase your own wheelchair at a reduced cost.
The NHS Community Services Wheelchair Service can advise you regarding this on 0121 329 0900. You can also talk to Capitol Mobility about this scheme.
