AJM Healthcare wheelchair provision image

A UK provider of wheelchair services to the NHS, AJM Healthcare is supporting medical practices within its local wheelchair services areas by providing wheelchairs to help with the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

The wheelchairs help clinically extremely vulnerable people to attend for their vaccinations easily, without the worry of having to bring their own wheelchairs.

AJM Healthcare says that so far, it has provided over 40 wheelchairs from its wheelchair services around the UK.  The company provides wheelchair services for NHS Brent CCG, NHS Ealing CCG, NHS Milton Keynes CCG and many more Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs).

“Often, these are rapid response requests, and we’re proud to have frequently been able to deliver these on the same day or next day at the request of the CCG,” AJM Healthcare said in a statement.

To further support the NHS which, due to increased COVID-19 numbers, has a shortage of therapists, AJM Healthcare has also put together a team to support hospital discharges for Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes.

Its team of therapists and administrators is planning patients’ aftercare out in the community.

Also aiding in the UK’s national coronavirus vaccination programme is major Integrated Community Equipment Service (ICES) provider NRS Healthcare. The company has recently helped a North Yorkshire medical practice to deliver COVID-19 vaccines by providing wheelchairs to residents.
