Wheelchair and Seating Services – Communication Brief
The Service has completed the recruitment of three new Rehabilitation Engineers within the SMART Rehabilitation Workshop. The new members of staff are currently being trained which will take several months due to the specialist nature of the posts. The service continues to use all the resources available to minimise any disruption and to ensure that a service is provided to our patients during this time. The service will continue to prioritise work based on individual clinical needs. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. Your understanding and patience is greatly appreciated.
