Welcome to the community.
Unfortunately, the NHS doesn’t normally issue mobility
scooters. NHS wheelchair clinics do currently have some discretion over setting
their own criteria for the equipment that they issue. However, for those that
have a need for an outdoor powered mobility device, the wheelchair clinic will
normally only be able assist if there is also a need for an indoor powered
mobility device. In most instances they will prescribe a powered wheelchair
capable of being used in both environments.
However, there are other routes to sourcing a mobility
scooter, see: http://www.dlf.org.uk/factsheets/scooter
Hope this helps
