NHS Personal Wheelchair Budget
- Ref: Personal Health Budget
May 2016 The NHS England replaced the current wheelchair voucher scheme with the Personal Wheelchair Budget. This will offer more options about where the wheelchair can be bought, and will include a detailed care plan to help the decision-making process. The plan will look at future servicing, repair and replacement needs, as well as the initial purchasing.
A personal health budget is an amount of money to support your health and wellbeing needs, which is planned and agreed between you (or someone who represents you), and your local NHS team. Capitol Mobility will work with the NHS team to supply, repair and maintain your equipment.
