Welcome to our Rotherham Wheelchair NHS Clinic

Rotherham Wheelchair service is part of Blatchford Wheelchair Services, we have a team of specialist clinicians including an Occupational Therapist and Senior Rehabilitation Engineer along with a team of administrators who are dedicated and committed to delivering a high quality and efficient service.

Services We Provide

Blatchford provide the clinical service for the Rotherham wheelchair services. This includes wheelchair and special seating assessments for children and adults with mobility and postural needs. We also provide pressure care cushions and accessories for wheelchairs and buggies.

Where Will the Assessment Be Carried Out?

Assessments take place in a variety of locations e.g wheelchair centre, home, day centre, school and E consultations.

When Will I Receive My Equipment?

Your equipment may be supplied directly from referral. Alternatively for service users requiring assessment you may receive the equipment directly at your clinic appointment or alternatively you will be allocated a handover appointment to set up your equipment to meet your needs.

Referrals Process

Patient Self-referrals ONLY (manual wheelchairs):
If you are a NEW patient who requires a manual wheelchair (non-motorised) and have a disability that is affecting your long-term mobility (6+months), then you may be entitled to an NHS wheelchair.

All referrals are reviewed by our clinical team and prioritised. Once your referral has been reviewed you may be supplied directly with a wheelchair or you may be invited to an assessment. Please click on the patient leaflet link below for more information.
