Community Equipment Service
What do we do?
Jointly funded by Pembrokeshire County Council and Hywel Dda University Health Board, the Pembrokeshire Community Equipment Service (CES) provide equipment to enable you to aid and maintain your daily living activities and independence at home. All equipment is provided free of charge for as long as it required.
Examples of equipment that may be recommended for use include:
- toilet seats and commodes
- furniture raisers
- walking frames
- profiling beds
- pressure care mattresses
Who do we support?
Adults and children with an assessed need. In order that you get the correct equipment, a health or social professional will call to assess your needs. If you have been in hospital you will be assessed before you are discharged. If you are at home one of the following professionals will assess you:
- District/Community Nurse attached to your GP practice
- Occupational Therapist
- Other 'Trusted Assessor' health or social care professional involved in your care
For emergency out of hours breakdown and repairs to beds, hoists or other electrical equipment provided by CES, please contact PRISM on 01924 840 100. Please note that stair lifts and ceiling track hoists are not fitted by, or the responsibility of CES.
Looking to return equipment?
Where possible we encourage small equipment to be returned directly to the store. For larger equipment, or where you are not able to return equipment yourself, please call the office and a collection can be arranged from your property.
Please note that wheelchairs should be returned to ALAS. NHS supplied walking sticks and crutches should be returned to an NHS hospital.
