REWS Logo

Medequip Assistive Technology are delighted to be named as the lead provider of the Rotherham Equipment & Wheelchair Service (REWS) from Friday 1st February. Following a competitive tender process in 2018, Medequip, in partnership with Blatchford and Ross Care were awarded the contract to provide this service by the NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group.

The Integrated Equipment and Wheelchair Service in Rotherham will provide service users with the equipment that they need to stay independent and to live at home. The service incorporates delivery, installation collection and recycling of a wide range of community equipment and wheelchairs, together with servicing and maintenance. A clinical assessment service for wheelchairs will assess service users’ needs for specialist assistive technology and will co-ordinate the provision of the equipment.

The service will continue to be delivered from the REWS distribution centre on Chesterton Road, Eastwood, Rotherham.

Ben Williams, Business Improvement Manager and Implementation Lead for Medequip said: After a 12 week implementation period, we are delighted to ‘go-live’ on Friday 1st February. We look forward to welcoming the existing REWS team to Medequip, Blatchford and Ross Care as partner providers of the service. As the leading provider of equipment services in the UK we are well placed to deliver a high quality effective service for the people of Rotherham with the courtesy and kindness that is at the heart of our values and in line with our vision of keeping people independent for longer.

Ian Atkinson, Deputy Chief Officer for NHS Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group said: We welcome Medequip Assistive Technology to Rotherham and see the new Rotherham Equipment and Wheelchair Service contract as integral to supporting us to deliver the Rotherham Health and Social Care Place Plan. Through ensuring people receive the right equipment in a timely manner, we can continue to support them to maintain their mobility and live independently.
