The service also delivers wheelchairs to your home, on behalf of the Wheelchair Service, for demonstration and assessment purposes.
Your delivery driver will show you how:

- to remove and replace the armrest for transfer
- a power chair is recharged and how often it requires charging
- a lap strap works and is adjusted
They will also ensure any speciality items from your old wheelchair that are required are transferred to your new wheelchair, e.g. modified arm Pads or back supports etc.
The Wheelchair Delivery & Collection Service collects wheelchairs that are no longer required by you including wheelchairs that are worn out, too small, too big, unreliable or where the user is deceased.
Wheelchairs issued by the NHS remain the property of the NHS throughout their lifespan and should always be returned when no longer used or required by the user they were issued too.
