Peterborough City Council - Community Equipment Service (ICES) PE1

Location: UK » East of England » PE
Sector: Social care

Issue: Community Equipment Service (ICES)

The Integrated Community Equipment Service provides specialist aids such as stair lifts and raised toilet seats. To ensure that we have enough equipment to meet the needs of people in the city, and that it is not misused, we will be applying improved controls when issuing. We will also be making sure that equipment that is no longer needed is returned so it can be made available to someone else.

We receive a shared budget from the NHS for this service. We are currently renegotiating with the NHS to increase its contribution to better reflect our use of the service. This is a contractual matter and there will be no changes for people who use the service.
