NHS England does not mandate service specifications for wheelchair services, but as part of its wheelchair improvement programme has developed a model service specification in collaboration with partners (and tested with clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and wheelchair providers) which sets out the ambition for excellent wheelchair services and the specific elements CCGs need to consider when commissioning services. This was launched in July 2017.
