About Community Equipment and Wheelchair Service
The Community Equipment and Wheelchair Service provides a range of equipment to help you live independently, whether it’s equipment for your home, or things to help you while out and about. Somerset residents can borrow equipment as long as needed from this service, which includes delivery and fitting, servicing, collection and recycling.
In most instances, to access equipment or wheelchairs you’ll need to be assessed by a health or social care professional. You can ask your GP for a referral or contact Somerset Count Council to ask about or request an assessment. Phone 0300 123 2224 or visit Somerset Council’s Care and Support Assessment webpage for more information: https://www.somerset.gov.uk/social-care-and-health/care-and-support-assessment.
The Community Equipment and Wheelchair Service is provided on behalf of Somerset County Council and NHS Somerset by Medequip, supported by AJM Healthcare.
If you have loaned equipment that you no longer need, Medequip can arrange a free of charge collection to recycle and help others in need. To return your equipment, please phone 01823 211699 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also return equipment yourself to: Community Equipment and Wheelchair Service, Unit 1 The Monarch Centre, Venture Way, Priorswood Industrial Estate, Taunton TA2 8DE. Opening Hours are 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
