Personal wheelchair budgets events - Great Yarmouth and Waveney
HS Great Yarmouth and Waveney CCG who commission NHS services and East Coast Community Healthcare CIC who deliver community health services in this area (including the wheelchair service), are hosting two events (one in Great Yarmouth and one in Waveney) to support the roll-out of Personal Wheelchair Budgets (PWB) and to help people understand what this means for them.
The events are free to attend and whether you are a wheelchair user, carer or work in a related service or organisation you are encouraged to go along to one of the events to find out about the changes.
There will be speakers from the NHS who will be explaining the new budgets and how they work. You will have the opportunity to meet wheelchair users who may already be benefitting from the new personal budgets.
You will also have the opportunity to meet people from related services and organisations and provide feedback on what the new budgets will mean for you.
If you work in a related service or organisation and cover both Great Yarmouth and Waveney, you are encouraged to attend both days.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day and a detailed agenda will be sent nearer the date.
Please note that both venues are fully accessible and also have adult changing facilities with a hoist and changing bench as well as a toilet.
If you would like to come along to the events but are not sure if you will be able to access it due to your personal needs, please contact the PALS team on 01502 445447 and they will see what they can do to accommodate.
