HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 c514W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans he has to ensure that NHS community trusts do not require insurance cover for wheelchairs loaned to patients. [1786]

Mr. Bowis

Patients are not required to insure their wheelchairs. Patients issued with a powered indoor-outdoor wheelchair may be advised to take out third party insurance so that they are covered against personal liability in the event of an accident.
