    When I asked about a walking stick ( wooden type) the nurse said due to health and safety they are not allowed to use a saw to cut to correct size but I could have an aluminium NHS one, so I have since bought my own three so far keeping one on my scooter and one for the garden and a very nice wooden carved one bought from a charity shop one of a kind so I had to have it.

    It's crazy. I paid to upgrade my wheelchair as I'm a permanent user to something a lot lighter. Must make note to use old NHS heavy beast.
