Equipment Loan and Purchase

NRS Healthcare are the providers of the community equipment loan service for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Operating from a service centre in Huntingdon, they provide products or 'daily living aids' on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council for people who may have had a spell in hospital, have a disability or injury, and require equipment in the home to help them live independently.

With support from Cambridgeshire County Council, they are offering an information and advice service to residents of the county who are not eligible to have community equipment provided on loan and so may have a requirement to purchase equipment themselves. The service and assessment options are provided free of charge, except for an Occupational Therapist home visit option which is chargeable to the client.
