Safe+Well service to help signpost reputable retailers

NRS Healthcare’s Safe+Well service, an initiative to help individuals remain independent for longer working supported by local councils and the NHS, is now planning on helping retailers benefit from the move to personal healthcare budgets.

The service, available in 11 counties across the UK, helps end-users choose appropriates aids to independent living with free online and telephone advice, as well as the option of working with occupational therapists and trained assessors.

NRS’ Andy Delany discussed the opportunity for mobility retailers in the market to help end-users access equipment as the prevalence of personal healthcare budgets rises.

Ranging from anywhere in the hundreds to the tens of thousands, personal healthcare budgets will allow end-users more freedom to source their own equipment to meet their needs, relieving the pressure from public care providers.

The Safe+Well service also recommends specific, NRS-approved retailers in local areas, with all Safe+Well registered retailers being required to undergo additional training and monitoring according to the company.

With the shift to personal healthcare budgets requiring local authorities to point users in the direction of reputable dealers, the Safe+Well service could see dealers and retailers benefit from appearing on the website.
