Referrals and Assessments

You can self-refer into the service, or be referred by a qualified healthcare professional, who will send you a letter or call you to let you know you are eligible for a wheelchair assessment.

A wheelchair assessment establishes your clinical needs and a prescription is made for the right wheelchair for you.

Your assessment will take place at one of our wheelchair clinics in Park Royal, Wembley, Barnet or at St. Charles Hospital in West London, or at home or another appropriate location, i.e. school or health care setting. 

When we call you to arrange your assessment appointment, you’ll be given a choice of location and time slot.
