For Professionals

The NHS Occupational Therapists at the I.L.C. provide an equipment specialist resource for people in Devon who want solutions to maintain their independence, safety and mobility. The service is also for carers and any Devon staff who need advice and information. The service is free and no referral is needed. We are funded by Devon County Council and Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust.

  • ILC equipment specialist OTs can discuss equipment conundrums and can join Devon staff on joint visits when required, to identify complex equipment solutions.
  • Staff can signpost service users to contact us themselves for equipment advice and information and to book an appointment to be assessed at our equipment demonstration centre. Our team can advise them on equipment  provision from statutory services and give buying guidance to people who need or choose to purchase equipment solutions.

Equipment training

We run a diverse programme of training for Devon staff to enhance practice and ensure equipment provision is effective and timely.

We regularity review new equipment and share this news through our social media sites and by inviting companies to demonstrate new innovations.
