How to Get Equipment for Disability
This 3rd edition provides the key to the vast system of the provision of equipment for disability. Updated and revised, the book offers comprehensive explanation of recent changes that have occurred in the system, together with an examination of issues and proposals currently under discussion, and assessments of how these affect the provision of equipment. It covers local practice in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, using relevant examples. As with previous editions, features include flow charts in each section of the book, showing how the system of provision works. The book is fully indexed, and contains a greater number of equipment entries.
