Please return rehab equipment to help NHS

People in Brighton & Hove who are no longer using six key items of specialist rehabilitation equipment are being asked to return them as soon as possible to help the NHS during the Coronavirus crisis.

The six items are:

  • Specialist hospital-style beds
  • Mattresses
  • Hoists
  • Electric reclining chairs
  • Perching stools
  • Commodes.

To arrange a collection please phone NRS Healthcare on 01273 894350 or email enquiries@brightonandhove.nrs-uk.net 

NRS Healthcare runs the city’s specialist rehab equipment service on behalf of the council and the local NHS. 

Councillor Clare Moonan, chair of the city’s health and wellbeing board, said: “We need the public to support us by returning these vital pieces of equipment if they are no longer using them. 

“We desperately need these items for people coming out of hospital.”

All collection drivers will be using appropriate personal protective equipment and will follow strict social distancing measures.

For example, some items can be left outside your front door on the day of collection.
