Have you been issued with a walking frame, a chair raiser or a pair of crutches and not returned them? Wanganui Hospital is urging local people to return mobility aids and any other equipment, such as toilet frames and chair raisers, which have been loaned to them and that they no longer need.
Whanganui DHB allied health manager Louise Allsopp says while people may have the best of intentions to return the equipment, once they are safely back in their home, sometimes they forget and it doesn’t always happen.
Mrs Allsopp says people are welcome to drop mobility aids or any other equipment they no longer need to Wanganui Hospital’s Loan Equipment Service, with no questions asked. The Loan Equipment Service’s building can be found at the Gate 2 entrance to the hospital campus. Or if you are unable to drop the equipment off you can call 06 348 1246 to arrange pick up.
