wheelchair service

Have had some frustration with wheelchair services over the last few years. I have been very impressed with the resources of the wheelchair maintenance departments who have very good engineers, also with some of the senior clinicians in the wheelchair service who have a lot of experience. The areas that seem to be difficult are provision of equipment for niche areas for example head controls and clinicians with a medium level of experience (there seems to be a number of less experienced staff and a small number of extremely experienced staff but not much between).
This results in very large waiting time for a specialist head controlled wheelchair as is my requirement and has led me to try to source it privately through grants in order to maintain sufficient reliability to work.
