New service shortlisted for respected national award
We are extremely pleased to announce that NHS East Riding of Yorkshire CCG new Personal Wheelchair Budget service has been shortlisted for a prestigious national healthcare award - The Health Service Journal's (HSJ) Health and Local Government Partnership Award.
Implemented and developed by East Riding CCG in collaboration with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Nottingham Rehabilitation Service (NRS), Blatchfords and patients, the new service offers users a wider range of wheelchair options, customised to suit their clinical and social needs, giving them more freedom and independence.
The service has been a huge success, at the end of 2018/19 the CCG and partners surpassed performance against the national personal health budget target of 115 by supporting and improving the health and wellbeing of 1,528 wheelchair users, or which 1,437 users were assisted via a personal wheelchair budget.
Martin Bailey (Pictured left), a service user said, "The new service is invaluable helping more people like me be able to afford a customised wheelchair specific to individual needs. I am more independent, and no longer have to rely on family and friends for many tasks that people take for granted. The telescopic seat allows me to do simple things; reach for items in tall cupboards, prune bushes and flowerbeds, continuing my love of gardening. I can now take Poppy my dog for walks, I have much more freedom."
