Report on wheelchair services in Calderdale and Kirklees published

Calderdale CCG has published an independent report on wheelchair (posture and mobility) services in Calderdale and Kirklees.

Dr Farrukh Javid, Clinical Lead for Posture and Mobility Services in Calderdale and Kirklees

Produced by PCAN, a Kirklees-based charity supporting parents and carers of children with additional needs, and commissioned by Calderdale, Greater Huddersfield and North Kirklees CCGs, the report gathers the views of over 450 wheelchair users and their families, schools, community groups and care professionals.

The information gathered in the report will be used to make improvements to the current NHS Posture and Mobility service across these areas, and in developing plans for a new service to be implemented from 1 October 2019.

Dr Farrukh Javid, Clinical Lead for Posture and Mobility Services in Calderdale and Kirklees, said: “We’ve been working in partnership with the voluntary and community sector to engage people who use wheelchair services in Calderdale and Kirklees over the past 12 months.

“This report represents a major step in shaping the service we provide for people using the NHS wheelchair service in our areas, and I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved so far.

“The CCGs have invested in the service and worked closely with Opcare, the service provider, to reduce waiting lists and ensure we get the right equipment to our service users. Now we plan to use these findings to prepare for the future, and build a service that supports its users in living their lives, some of which are among the most vulnerable people in our society.”
