Equipment and adaptation service

A health and social care partnership service

The service provides equipment and adaptations across North Lanarkshire, as well as NHS Lanarkshire equipment only for South Lanarkshire.

The service receives approximately 600 requests a week and delivers around 80% of all equipment requests within seven working days.

The range of equipment and adaptations provided is very wide and includes items such as assistive technology, sensory impairment items, profiling beds, commodes, standard walking items, stairlifts, external rails and banisters, ramps and bathroom adaptations.

Requests either come from health and social care staff following an assessment or from members of the public who have completed a guided self-assessment for equipment on our Making Life Easier website.

You can also arrange service and repairs of equipment that has been issued. These are carried out either by staff from the service or companies contracted by the council.
