Change of provider for wheelchair services in mid Nottinghamshire

A new provider has been appointed to support people with mobility needs in mid Nottinghamshire from 1 September 2018.

Ross Care provides wheelchair services and mobility equipment on behalf of the NHS and Local Authorities across the country, and has been awarded a contract to provide mobility services in mid Nottinghamshire.

Patients will experience minimal change to current arrangements. The service will continue to be centred at Mansfield Community Hospital with contact and referral details unchanged. There will be no changes to eligibility criteria for mobility products.

Health commissioners want to ensure that a wheelchair service is provided that delivers the right wheelchair at the right time for local people, helping wheelchairs users and their families/carers live as full a life as possible.

Early evening drop-in sessions will take place in Newark and Mansfield where patients will have an opportunity to meet the team and ask any questions. The dates and venues are as follows:

  • Monday 10 September 2018 from 6 pm to 7 30 pm at Newark Hospital, Boundary Road, Newark, NG24 4DE
  • Thursday 13 September 2018 from 5 30 pm to 7 pm at Mansfield Community Hospital, Stockwell Gate, Mansfield, NG18 5QJ
