Rotherham Equipment and Wheelchair Service (REWS) is a joint integrated NHS and Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) service dedicated to the provision of equipment to meet a health or social care need for people living in Rotherham following an assessment by a suitably qualified professional.

The Rotherham Equipment and Wheelchair Service is dedicated to providing technical expertise, and support to ensure NHS Wheelchairs meet the client requirements, and in ensuring they are in a safe and serviceable condition.

All elements of wheelchair repair, maintenance, and modification are now undertaken ‘in house’ by the REWS service, based at Chesterton Rd, Eastwood, Rotherham, S65 1SU.

The service will now be responsible for all aspects of the NHS Wheelchair and NHS/RMBC Community Equipment provision, with the following dedicated telephone numbers on which to contact the REWS Wheelchair service.

If you have an equipment breakdown that puts your health at risk please call the Care Coordination Centre on 01709 426600.
