Whether a referral arrives by paper or electronically TCES Wheelchair facilitates both. They are added to the system by administration staff and once visible in the system the 18-week referral to equipment timeline is activated. To ensure this timescale isn’t exceeded stop and pause reasons relating back to contract policies are incorporated, with auto reactivation and configurable alerts. For instance, an incomplete referral can be rejected and returned to the staff member, resulting in the 18-week timescale being paused until the referral is revised.
