Welsh Government welcomes wheelchair inquiry

A Welsh Government spokesperson said: "The Health Minister welcomes the one-day inquiry into wheelchair services to be undertaken by the Health and Social Care Committee, and has submitted a progress report to the Committee.

"A considerable amount of work has been done since the initial review of wheelchair provision in 2008, including the establishment of an all-Wales programme of action to ensure an efficient and effective service.

In addition, we have allocated an extra £2.2 million per year recurring from 2011-12 to increase capacity and to specifically target wheelchair services for children as a priority."
