If any mechanical problem the patient should contact WESTMARC repair services on 0844 811 3001.
If they own the wheelchair then NHS does not carry out repairs.
Is your wheelchair uncomfortable or do you feel you need a helper pushed wheelchair? (If patient doesn't already have one)?
If patient answers 'Yes' consider referral to Westmarc for review of wheelchair for possible adaptations, e.g. postural support or a helper driven wheelchair.
