NHS Clinical Commissioners and Whizz-Kidz call for changes to improve wheelchair commissioning

NHS Clinical Commissioners recognises the crucial role that wheelchair commissioning plays in ensuring disabled people get the mobility equipment they need quickly and easily to live active and independent lives. Historically, commissioning of wheelchair services has suffered from delays and a low priority.

In a new paper, published in partnership with the disabled children’s charity Whizz-Kidz, NHSCC is calling on its membership to put this right with suggested solutions that deliver better outcomes for patients, while also saving money. For more information please get in touch with Nick Goldup, NHS Partnerships Director at Whizz-Kidz on n.goldup@whizz-kidz.org.uk
