There is a real shortage of specific items of community equipment coming in to the country due to Brexit and Covid implications. The items we are most struggling with are: height adjustable shower chairs, commodes, perching stools, toilet frames, door frame ramps and adjustable bed rails. These items are really important for discharge from hospital or preventing admissions.
A press release has been issued to encourage residents to return items (Residents urged to return unwanted medical equipment for reuse – Herefordshire Council) and social media posts have also been issued. Anything you can do to spread the word would be very much appreciated.
