Equipment Services Project Report

A report into the Equipment Service which is used by more than 16,000 Salford residents has been published by Healthwatch Salford.

Produced in partnership with Salford City Council and Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), the report explores how the service - which provides a range of assistive equipment for people to use at home, including bed rails, hoists, bath seats and telecare - is viewed by its users.

A total of 335 people - a mix of users of the service and their families and carers - responded to the postal survey.

It found the majority of respondents (92.2%) felt the equipment met their needs, with one respondent saying: “The stair handrail and grip bars fitted at front door and shower, have made a big difference to my husband's mobility and confidence especially going up and down stairs. He has a great fear of falling.”
