Community Equipment Service - Questionnaire

The County Durham and Darlington Community Equipment Service is the service which loans equipment (e.g. walking frames, beds, toilet aids) to children and adults of all ages with illness and/or disabilities to help with their nursing, social and rehabilitation care.

 The service delivers, collects, fits, maintains, decontaminates and recycles a range of disability aids, equipment and adaptations to the population of County Durham and Darlington and plays a key role in facilitating hospital discharges, preventing avoidable admissions and ensuring independent living in the home.

County Durham and Tees Valley Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), Durham County Council and Darlington Borough Council are currently thinking about changes that could be made to the service to ensure it meets the needs of people living in County Durham and Darlington.

As part of this process we have gathered feedback from people who have had equipment loaned to them from the service but we are also interested in the views of people who haven't had experience of the current service.
