There are a number of services across the borough that can provide specialist equipment, information and support to help you live independently.

For smaller items you may find that your GP can prescribe from an approved list of products stocked by many Chemists. Examples include: elastic stockings, trusses, appliances for colostomies etc. Community and district nurses can also provide some aids and equipment such as ripple pillows, V frames etc.

For independent advice, reports and information on daily living equipment please visit Living Made Easy and Ricability - both are fully accredited by the Department of Health's Information Standard. 

You can also find out more on Equipment on the Dudley Community Information Directory
