Some of the things that are commonly borrowed from our equipment store include;
We are usually able to deliver the equipment (if it is readily available from our store) within one week throughout Scotland. Equipment loan is free of charge as is delivery and uplift.
We also offer a loan of our communication aids to people with MND who need assistance communicating, while you wait for your own equipment from the NHS.
All you have to do is ask your MND Clinical Specialist to put in an application for you.
They will either provide a recommendation on the equipment needed or will organise for an Occupational Therapist (OT) or Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) to carry out an assessment and make a recommendation.
Once a recommendation has been made, your Clinical Specialist will send an application to MND Scotland and to your local health board.
MND Scotland may not be able to lend exactly what is recommended, but we will try to provide something suitable until the recommended equipment is supplied by your health board.
