The Wheelchair Hub

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

The Wheelchair Hub provides a comprehensive wheelchair, seating and sleep system service for people with long term mobility problems and associated postural needs.

The service offers assessment to children and adults for provision of manual and powered wheelchairs, specialist children’s' buggies and associated supportive seating to meet postural and pressure care needs. 

Once equipment provision is established, The Wheelchair Hub provides ongoing support through review of service user's needs and maintenance of equipment on issue.   

The Wheelchair Hub provides a single, streamlined service for all aspects of wheelchair care: 

  • Wheelchair and posture assessment, equipment and review

  • Rehabilitation Engineering

  • Repairs and maintenance

  • Sleep system service: the Wheelchair Hub will include the new sleep system service.  

We now offer sleep systems to local children and adults in Hounslow, as part of the new 24-hour postural management to service users.  Sleep systems enable patients to maintain good posture while sleeping, helping to prevent deformities from occurring and improving the patient’s health and quality of life.  The sleep systems provided by the trust are tailored to the needs of the user - creating a moulded shape around the body to support the patient in a well aligned posture overnight. 

How do I access the service?

The service is an 'open access' service as service users can self-refer (by referral form) or contact therapists for information and advice directly via the telephone or email. Service users must be registered with an NHS Hounslow GP.
