How to get a wheelchair or walking aid


If you need a wheelchair, walking stick or walking frame, your NHS doctor, nurse or therapist can refer you for a loan. This is done through the Surrey Wheelchair Service.

The Red Cross also loan wheelchairs and toileting aids on a weekly basis.

You can also find local organisations offering equipment loan on Connect to Support Surrey.
