Wheelchair Clinic - NHS

In general, wheelchair services are available to people of all ages who have a long-term need for mobility help. However, the specific criteria for whether you're eligible are decided locally and will vary depending on where you live. 

Before you can be offered a wheelchair, you’ll have to undergo an assessment. This will determine if you're eligible and, if so, what type of mobility equipment is most appropriate. The assessment is normally carried out at NHS wheelchair services centres or clinics.

It is unlikely a NHS Wheelchair Service will be able to provide equipment on a temporary loan.  Volunteer Centre West Berkshire Shopmobility and  British Red Cross loan wheelchairs.
