Do I qualify for a wheelchair assessment from Suffolk Wheelchair Service? 

  • do I have a Suffolk GP?
  • do I need a wheelchair for more than six months?
  • will I use the wheelchair four times a week or more?
  • do I have a medical condition which affects my ability to walk in the home or outdoors?

If you answer yes to all of the above questions you should ask your GP, physiotherapist or occupational therapist to complete a referral form and send it to us. 

How do I get referred? 

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, you should ask your GP, physiotherapist or occupational therapist to complete a referral.
