Two key players of the mobility industry have announced a collaboration with the aim of cutting wheelchair lead-times for users to just three weeks.
Recent news reports have revealed the frustration of a large number of disabled people have been had to wait up to and beyond the intended maximum 18 week period for NHS wheelchairs.
It is the aim of the joint venture to unite the specialist assessment and manufacturing expertise of both organisations, amalgamating their extensive knowledge and production processes together in order to get their manual and powered wheelchairs out to the clients faster than ever.
With a combined 60+ years’ industry experience supplying mobility equipment throughout the healthcare sector, this new initiative is designed to provide a more responsive service, without compromising on quality and clinical standards.
“We are very excited to announce this new scheme working in conjunction with Sunrise Medical, which is primed to make a big impact for wheelchair users and be a positive step forward within the provision of wheelchair services,” said Luke Partridge, operations manager at Bartrams Healthcare.
