Do you have an NHS-supplied wheelchair?
Is it useful to you?
Do you actually use it?
I have one. It’s heavy, primitive, cumbersome, and I don’t have the strength to propel myself more than a few yards in it. I can’t go out independently in it, I need someone to push me.
There is no prospect of getting anything suitable from the NHS for my situation. In addition, they refuse to provide a powered wheelchair whilst I am still able to stagger around within the house on my legs. This takes no account of the fact that I need a powered wheelchair to go out independently, as I don’t have the strength to propel myself in a manual wheelchair and can’t walk more than a very few yards.
I guess this is a common situation for many people with MS, who have some small degree of mobility left but need powered assistance out of doors in order to live independently.
I do not think the NHS wheelchair service serves people with MS at all well.
I’d be interested to learn of your experiences.
