Equipment Service

The Essex Partnership Trust provides short term loan of community equipment to those registered with a GP within the West Essex area .

The equipment loan period will be for up to six months.

Equipment is available to assist with mobility, toileting, bathing and minor adaptations e.g raising existing furniture.

The first part of the ordering process is for an assessment to be completed by a Health care professional to obtain the correct items of equipment. This, when completed, is passed to the Independent Living Centre for processing.

All equipment is delivered directly to the address requested by the Health care professional and the equipment will be located in the property and set up by the person delivering the equipment or instruction will be given to contact a therapist for specialist advice before it is used.

We provide a collection service and will arrange for collection of the equipment either at your request which you can do by telephoning the number below or at the end of the 6 month period.
