About the equipment and costs

I have been assessed as needing equipment, where does the equipment come from?

Equipment is provided by Coventry Integrated Community Equipment Service (ICES).
Equipment is provided to people who live in Coventry. Some items can be provided to people who live on the outskirts of Coventry and who have a Coventry based doctor.
The equipment is usually delivered to your home and fitted by a skilled worker. If you prefer, you can collect items that do not need specialist fitting, such as pressure cushions and walking aids.

When is the Coventry Integrated Community Equipment Service (ICES) open?

The service is open Monday-Thursday from 8.30am to 5pm; and Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. Deliveries and collections are usually between 8.45am and 3.30pm.

Do I have to pay for equipment?

The equipment is provided free and is loaned to you for as long as you need it, providing you have had a social care assessment.
Whilst you have the equipment it is your responsibility to make sure it is looked after and well maintained. If it is damaged through normal wear and tear, you may be able to get a replacement free of charge.
