Personal Wheelchair Budgets

Personal Wheelchair Budgets (PWBs)  aim to provide wheelchair users of all ages with a wider choice regarding their wheelchair provision.

If you meet the eligibility  criteria (see CCG and Wheelchair services website) for an NHS package, you will be offered an assessment and your therapist will discuss the options with you, explaining what a PWB means and how it can be used to meet your needs. 

Your PWB will be based on the cost to the NHS of providing a wheelchair that meets your needs. There is no increase in NHS fundhing but there are options about how you can use your PWB.
