Wheelchairs

If you have a wheelchair it is important to keep it well maintained - so that it is safe and comfortable when you are using it.  You should make sure that the brakes work and that the footplate's are secure when they are down. 

If you have an NHS wheelchair and it needs repaired, phone 0141 951 3640.  If you have bought your own wheelchair then your supplier will tell you how you can get repairs done. 

If your wheelchair is uncomfortable, or if you own a wheelchair that you push yourself but feel you can't manage anymore, or if you feel that you need a wheelchair but don't have one, then ask your practice nurse or GP about it.
