Wheelchairs and walking aids
A wheelchair might be the right equipment to help you remain independent - either short term or longer term. You can talk to your GP for initial advice.
If you are already a wheelchair user, you can contact the local wheelchair service directly for reassessment, repair and maintenance, and advice.

Your GP can also talk to you about a wide range of walking aids, such as frames, and physiotherapy. These can help you to remain independent and keep doing the things you enjoy. You can also buy mobility aids yourself.
