Re: Wigs

When you get your voucher you will be told where it can be used, and how much it’s worth. I was lucky in that my Trust paid for my wig. The wig fitter ( is that what they’re called???) advised me to choose short, so the ends don’t frazzle, get a handwoven one, so it looks natural, and have a lace cap, which is lighter and looks like your scalp. Obviously mine wasn’t real hair, but more than good enough to fool friends and family. I would have struggled to pay what it said on the box.  I loved it. I called it my shake’n’go look. Also took the opportunity to buy hats and change my look, as a wig is so hot in summer. X

And suppliers in Sheffield. I’ve looked on Safari and there’s nothing on the NHS websites, national or local as to which suppliers are able to take the vouchers. A national list would be extremely helpful! I have a good supply of beanies and scarves but a wig would be good.

Re: Wigs

Hi Kelly73

 

I'm not in your area but when I got my wig voucher from my oncologist there was a list of local suppliers on the info sheet!

Did you get your NHS voucher?

Hope you get sorted 👩
