Hi, I am Richard Jackson, owner of Mobility Aid Services. I would like to share my 18 years of healthcare experience with you, as I believe it enables me to help those with a health issue make an informed choice with the equipment they need.
After serving in the Armed Forces, I volunteered at my local hospital and eventually took the role as a physiotherapy assistant with the NHS, providing exercise and rehabilitation programmes in the Hospital Outpatient Department. This led to an opportunity to develop inpatient experience - working on Care of the Elderly and Stroke rehabilitation wards.
Following on from this I became a Technical Instructor with a community based
Older Peoples Team in Clydebank, Glasgow providing assessment, rehabilitation and support to clients in their own home.
After 9 years with the NHS, I moved into the commercial sector, working for an
internationally recognised healthcare equipment manufacturer providing products
and support to the NHS and Social Services throughout the UK. This provided
the insight and experience in the design, production and sales of specialist
At the forefront of my decision to purchase Mobility Aid Services was an intention
to use my experience to the benefit of the community in which I live. The vast majority of my customers have either a chronic condition or mobility issue, which causes difficulty
or even puts them at risk whilst carrying out a task or activity. We at Mobility Aid Services provide a range of aids to daily living, mobility equipment and nursing products to help address or even prevent such issues.
I provide an advice service which allows my customers and their families to make an informed decision - ensuring that needs are being met and that independence is maintained. Assessment areas have been established in the shop to highlight the use of specific equipment and provide appropriate advice.
