MyHealth Mobility, the retail arm of AJM Healthcare, is closing its stores in Bexhill and Eastbourne, marking its exit from bricks-and-mortar shops for now.
The East Sussex company confirmed to AMP this morning that the move is so that MyHealth can concentrate on its online sales and the expansion of its servicing, providing maintenance contracts to businesses and private individuals for items such as hoists, wheelchairs and beds.
Commercial and bid manager Neil Lockhart said: “We have also had rapid expansion of our NHS wheelchair services which is taking focus to a more national level where online retail for self-funders is a more suitable solution.”
MyHealth, formerly trading as AJ Mobility, announced recently that it was holding closing down sales at its shops. But now it will be focusing resources on its e-commerce site which already holds a large range of products and is user-friendly.
The parent company recently won a new wheelchair services tender with Milton Keynes CCG as part of its NHS services growth.
The new service aims to deliver a safe, effective, responsive and integrated service to meet the needs of service users, their families and carers and available to residents registered with a GP within the area
Patients referred to the service receive a full holistic assessment by occupational therapists and rehabilitation engineers through close working with health and social care professionals where required.
The company has been providing mobility and disability aids and equipment for over 30 years under various trading names.
MyHealth was born from an injection of new life into the brand to promote what the business feels it is all about.
