mobility wheelchair

Hi

I have been assessed by the hospital and am going to get a manual wheelchair in the next couple of weeks. I have been told that because I get higher mobility allowance I should use that towards the cost of a powered wheelchair. I have a wee question about how the scheme works. Does the scheme take the money directly off what I get paid or do I pay it on a weekly basis? Also do I get paid what is left over after the cost?

Cheers
