Mobility service

We provide mobility services for children and young people across East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire.

We support children aged 12 months and upwards who have severe, long-term degenerative physical difficulties and postural challenges and who require special seating and wheelchairs. Conditions we work with include cerebral palsy, neurological conditions, amputations, palliative care and cardio-vascular conditions.

Our team of highly-trained specialist staff provide holistic evidence-based assessments to provide bespoke mobility equipment for children and young people.

We are based at St Mark’s Hospital in Maidenhead and cover East Berkshire and South Buckinghamshire. (The Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading covers West Berkshire.)

Most appointments take place at St Mark’s Hospital but we also carry out home visits, when required, and provide clinics in schools.

When you come to us, we carry out measurements and look at the level of mobility and how it is being managed. We then work out the best type of chair to meet your child’s needs. Every chair is unique.

We provide:

  • Electrical powered chairs
  • Manual wheelchairs
  • Self-propelled chairs
  • Children’s buggies
  • Modular seating
  • Specialist cushions
  • Moulded seating, manufactured on an individual basis

We also repair and maintain all equipment.

We advise you to see a healthcare professional first so they can refer your child to our service. We aim to see your child within two weeks of referral.

Once your child has been assessed and provided with equipment, we’ll give you our contact details so you can contact us directly for repairs, maintenance and support.
