Community Equipment Service

Community Equipment Service is run by Medequip. This service is funded by Stoke Local Authority and the ICB.

If you do not have a therapist or nurse then please discuss with your GP or social care. 


If you have equipment that is requiring maintenance or is no longer needed please contact Medequip.
