Our service is for drivers or passengers who experience difficulty getting in and out of a vehicle, or for those who need to assist people or load equipment into vehicles. The assessment explores a range of options including the use of specialist transfer and stowage equipment and wheelchair accessible vehicles. The assessment is conducted by an Occupational Therapist or Driving Adviser as required. In addition, it may be appropriate to engage external specialists in circumstances when we do not have specific equipment available. The service begins with a comprehensive discussion of your needs and the options that are available; wherever possible we will trial equipment as to its suitability and include possible solutions to any foreseeable access problems. A comprehensive written report is provided to clients.
- At present this assessment is free of charge. Home Visits can be arranged for an additional cost if you are unable to attend a centre.
