The Blackdown Practice, the Blackdown Support Group and the Violet Chapman Trust have purchased or been given various items of medical equipment e.g. walking sticks, zimmer frames, wheel chairs, an electric 'buggy', raiser/recliner chairs and beds. These are available on loan and so may help patients to assess their needs before considering a specific purchase.
The BSG (01823 681036) has a vehicle adapted for use by wheelchair users, which can be hired on a self-drive or driven basis, and costs only 50p per mile.
If you would like to loan any of the above, please collect an application form from the Blackdown Surgeries.
