Healthcare provider urges return of unneeded care equipment

Berkshire’s health and social care system is asking people to help by returning any aid and equipment they have been loaned and no longer need.

This can include rollators, chairs, mattresses, perching stools, commodes, slings, bed rails, walking frames, or electrical and telecare items - any with an NRS Healthcare sticker attached.

Much of this equipment could be recycled and reused.

    About time, trying to return walking fames in particular was a nightmare. My late aunt had 8 after several falls. Each time she left hospital she was given a frame even when hospital staff were told she already had several at home. After she went into permanent care my sister took them back to the hospital and just left them. Excuse in the past - they cost more to clean than to buy!!
