#Somerset residents - urgent appeal
If you have any of our #community beds, mattresses, commodes, bath lifts, shower chairs, toilet surrounds, patient turning equipment, hoists and slings that you no longer need, please contact us, to arrange for it to be collected. Our collections are free and contactless – where possible we pick up from outside people’s homes to ensure everybody stays safe.
This equipment is loaned on behalf of the NHS and local authority social care teams, when people leave hospital or after a period of illness, to help them stay safe at home and retain their independence. The Covid-19 pandemic has increased demand for this equipment and created shortages in supply.
If anyone has Millbrook Healthcare equipment they no longer need, please get in touch to book a free collection so that it can be reused to help others who are in need. At present, we have ample stocks of smaller items such as crutches and walking frames so we ask our service users to hold on to them for the time being.
Contact us to arrange a collection date and on the agreed day, where possible leave the equipment outside your house. We take the equipment to our service centres to be deep cleaned, tested and refurbished if necessary, ready to be issued to others on behalf of our clients - the NHS and local adult social care teams.
Please visit www.millbrook-healthcare.co.uk/collections to arrange a contactless collection, free of charge.
