Are you a wheelchair user and would like to get involved in shaping better services? Join the Wheelchair User's Forum
Wheelchair services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are currently being re-tendered by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group who plan and pay for these services. The new contract will start in 2019.
The Wheelchair User Forum is Chaired by Tony Honour. He said, "I feel pleased and proud to be a part of the Wheelchair User Forum and hope to make a useful contribution so that the service can be improved and users can obtain the chair they require in order to improve their quality of life."
Our Sitting Comfortably
report published in 2016 found that wheelchair services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are often poorly coordinated, with people waiting too long for wheelchairs and repairs.
We helped set up this forum in 2017 to feedback the lived experiences of wheelchair users into the service redesign. We felt it was vital to have this input so that future services better meet the needs of local people
In the last year, this forum has raised concerns about the wheelchair service with Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) who plan and pay for these services. Forum members have told them what a good wheelchair service would look like.
Where the meetings are held
Forum meetings are held in Papworth Everard every three months (four times per year). They are open to the public and you are welcome to come along.
