Personal Health Budgets for Wheelchairs – Volunteers Needed

Norfolk Community Health and Care (NCH&C) is working on a project to develop a Personal Health Budget that can be used to purchase a wheelchair for those people assessed by the Wheelchair Service as needing one.

The plan is that the Personal Health Budget will replace the current Wheelchair Voucher scheme. It aims to offer choice and flexibility to those people who prefer to purchase their own wheelchair rather than having one provided by the service.

The plan is that the PHB will be an option from Autumn 2017.  We would be happy to tell Equal Lives members more about the scheme and would welcome a few volunteers to help with the design of promotional material/ ‘road test’ the process etc
