NRS Healthcare run a government-backed scheme that means you may not be required to pay the VAT on some of your purchases of products from NRS Healthcare at the time you order and complete your purchase. However, as you would expect, not all purchases by all customers are eligible; so here is the very important information on how this scheme works: A purchase can only be exempt from VAT when all the following conditions are met:
1. You (or who you are buying it for) are chronically ill or disabled , this means someone:
With a physical or mental impairment which has a long term and substantial adverse effect upon his or her ability to carry out everyday activities, or
With a condition which the medical profession treats as a chronic sickness, such as diabetes.
Who is terminally ill.
It does not include a frail elderly person who is otherwise able-bodied or any person who is only temporarily disabled or incapacitated, such as with a broken limb
2. The goods are for personal or domestic use, this means:
The goods are supplied for your own private use, rather than for business purposes.
The goods are not made widely available for a whole group of people.
The products that are eligible to be supplied at the zero VAT rate, are identified on the shopping basket page with a check box and you must tick the box indicating you wish to claim VAT-exemption on that item, then click the "update basket" button before you can Proceed to Checkout.
You currently have no items in your shopping basket.
Stair Climber & Emergency Evacuation
When it's not safe to climb or descend stairs, our stair climber is a convenient and controlled way of helping patients use stairs. They are especially useful when lift access is not available. Our emergency evacuation range also covers lightweight evacuation chairs, sheets and sledges, in addition to lifting cushions, which can help with getting people off the floor to a seated position safely.
Emergency Evacuation And Lifting Disability Equipment
There is a wide range of disability equipment available across the NRS Healthcare website. A lot of the disability equipment is obvious but very helpful such as grab rails or steps. There are however very important items which people overlook, assuming that they will never need them or simply not realising that they might need them.
Lifting Aids for Disabled
This section of disability equipment is emergency evacuation, lifting and Moving Aids. There might come a time when someone needs to be lifted to safety or evacuated quickly and this can be very difficult if the correct disability equipment isn’t available. Evacuation sledges, sheets and overlays can all make evacuating a disabled person much easier and they can also be stored away until they are needed.
