The Trust has a responsibility to look after the safety of staff and patients, where patients require support to move and mobilise.

An assessment of your mobility needs will therefore be carried out with you and / or your family or carers on admission and documented in your plan of care.

In order to maintain and / or improve independence you will be encouraged to move yourself wherever possible.

If you do require assistance, to maximise your safety and comfort, guidance and / or mobility aids can be used to assist you.

Examples of mobility aids include hoists, slide sheets, walking frames and standing aids.
