Coronavirus - Changes to our services

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, some of our non-urgent services have been temporarily suspended and others are operating with reduced hours. Find out about service changes here.

Wheelchair and Posture Services

This part of the website is being designed specifically for GPs, Clinical Commissioning groups, care homes and other care professionals who need the service referral information or access to Trust policies and care leaflets.

How does a GP refer in to this service?

For submitting first or new referrals, it is important that GPs access a professional who has completed our accredited referrers’ course, or attend one of the half day courses themselves at the service. Contact the team using the number on this page for more information. The dedicated referral form (listed in the "Useful downloads" box) should be completed either electronically or posted back to the service.

GPs can refer someone who is already known to the service by telephone, email or by letter by contacting the team by using the numbers on this page.

Types of patients regularly seen

The service normally sees people with a long term disability including:

  • neurological trauma (head injuries)
  • spinal injuries
  • elderly/frail people
  • children born with a congenital condition
