Healthcare Professionals

We are championing iWantGreatCare.org who have just launched the world’s first rate and review service for wheelchair services, which will help improve wheelchair services across the UK.

Whizz-Kidz gives freedom to young people with a physical disability through our expert, customer centred and innovative approach to wheelchair provision.

How we can work with you

Our experience tells us that - with the exception of a few areas of good practice - families across the country struggle to access appropriate wheelchairs through the NHS. That's where Whizz-Kidz comes in. 

Working collaboratively to help disabled children

To reach greater numbers of disabled people, Whizz-Kidz partners with the NHS to deliver wheelchair services by using our expert and innovative approach. Together we reach more disabled people, like Jamie and William, quickly and with equipment which suits their needs and gives them the freedom to be themselves. 

We are continually seeking opportunities to work collaboratively with the NHS to deliver wheelchair services utilising our expertise, innovations and unrelenting focus on the children we serve, in as many regions as possible. Thousands children and young people are still waiting for appropriate mobility equipment, and it is imperative that we work together to reach them.

We work hard to reduce inequalities across the country for wheelchair users and helping shape government policy that will spread efficiency and enhance quality.

Improving outcomes for disabled adults as well as children

Most people know Whizz-Kidz for our work with disabled children, but as well as thousands of children, there are still thousands of adults waiting for the mobility equipment they need to fulfill their potential and enjoy independent lives. In some areas, the NHS funds Whizz-Kidz to bring our proven track record, clinical and business expertise to adults like Stephen, as well as children, where paediatric and adult wheelchair services are combined.

Better commissioning

We’ve been working with NHS Clinical Commissioners to call for changes to improve wheelchair commissioning, with the aim to improve health outcomes for patients, reduce delays and save costs. You can read our commissioning of wheelchair services paper (opens in new window), written with NHSCC, which sets out some of the issues and our recommendations for improvement. 

Choice and competition

We believe that every wheelchair user should have the opportunity to take charge of their own healthcare, and ideally a choice of providers to ensure they receive the best possible service and equipment. Choice and competition for NHS wheelchair services will offer a golden opportunity to extend the improvements that Whizz-Kidz has spearheaded with existing NHS partners, to the rest of the country.

What makes Whizz-Kidz special?

We transform the lives of disabled people in the UK through our dynamic approach. We want to work more widely with the NHS to extend our model for wheelchair provision in order to reach more disabled people, quickly and with equipment that suits their needs.
