Due to Covid-19, Reading Borough Council and its equipment provider (NRS Healthcare) are in a critical position in relation to equipment available for service users. Please see the attached flyer explaining the situation and what action service users can take.

At present there is an urgent need for beds, mattresses, hoists and commodes. If you have other equipment to return, please keep hold of it and contact us after the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you or your service users have equipment from RBC or NRS Healthcare that is no longer needed and would like to arrange a collection, please call NRS Healthcare on 0344 893 6960 during opening hours (8:30am–4:30pm Monday to Friday) or email your details to Please check that the equipment has an NRS Healthcare sticker on it first.

In the meantime, please download and share this flyer as much as possible on your social media, with your contacts and service users to get the word out.
