Aids, Equipment and Adaptations
Local Authority & NHS Services
There are a number of different organisations involved in equipment decisions relating to children and young people. These organisations meet every three weeks to discuss any requests and make decisions.
We know more work is needed to ensure that the process for equipment is made clearer for parents/carers and professionals alike. A meeting with key professionals from different organisations is planned for November 2018 to understand this more and to develop a clear process.
When this work is completed, The Local Offer will be updated.
In the meantime if equipment is required, a health practitioner will be able to discuss this with you and complete the required paperwork to be submitted to our panel to be considered.
