Assessments are held in a variety of locations e.g. clinic, at home, at a day centre or school.
How to refer into the service
Any qualified healthcare professional can refer to the service e.g. GP, district nurse, physiotherapist and occupational therapist.
All referrals will be looked at by one of our occupational therapists and prioritised according to the Lincolnshire Wheelchair Service specification and criteria.
This may result in direct prescription and supply of equipment to the client.
Alternatively a face-to-face assessment may be required, which may be held at a variety of locations.
Please refer to the referral form, which you can download here.
