A weekly clinic has launched in Suffolk for people who need extra equipment to help them get about.
The new service is open every Monday between 10am and 3pm at Hartismere Health and Care in Eye.
The clinic is for local people who have been assessed as needing simple equipment to help them with their everyday lives.
They can be seen by an occupational therapist assistant and helped to select, test and order the equipment they require.
Alison Smith, director of community services at Ipswich Hospital trust, said: “The aims of this new simple equipment clinic are to provide care closer to home, to reduce travelling time and to improve access to care and equipment that enables people to live independently and safely, with or without support by our community health and social care teams.”
