Description

The Medway Integrated Community Equipment Service (MICES) supports children and adults who, due to their health or a disability, may need community equipment such as walking frames, hoists, crutches, and chairs to help them live their day-to-day lives and maintain their independence and wellbeing.

MICES is a loan service commissioned by Medway Council and the NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group (KMCCG). The service is provided by Medequip who will also install a range of aids and adaptations to help you in your home. This could include grab rails, ceiling track hoists, and temporary ramps. 

Making a Request

MICES is a loan service, where community equipment is delivered directly to your home free of charge.  For in-home assessment by an occupational therapist or trusted assessor, email us on ss.accessandinfo@medway.gov.uk or call 01634 334 466.

Residents may be eligible for a Disabled Facilities Grant to pay for major works, such as a wet room or widening doors. For more information email us on disabled.adaptations@medway.gov.uk  or call 01634 331 200.

If your needs have changed

If your equipment is no longer meeting your needs, you will need another assessment to see if a different piece of equipment or an adaptation to your current equipment is required.  Email us on ss.accessandinfo@medway.gov.uk or call 01634 334 466 to book an appointment.

If you are not eligible

Ask SARA, an online self-help guide hosted by the Disabled Living Foundation could help you with advice and information about products that could make daily living easier.
