Discuss Dad having Chemo, needs Walk in Shower fitted in Nottingham asap in the Plumbing Forum area at

    Maybe not the usual thing you might see on a forum, but I thought I would give it a shot. My Dad is having Chemo and needs a walk in shower fitted with a bit of tiling. We purchased the shower tray, surround, tiles etc and had a plumber who is a family friend lined up but he has had to pull out last minute. Now we are looking for plumber to do the work in Nottingham asap. The plumber we had lined up told us its a 1.5 - 2 day job max as most of the bathroom is staying the same, just really replacing the bath and some pipe work and tiling. I've called a few plumbers and it seems many are booked for months or don't want a smaller job like this, they all want the big expensive jobs. Does anyone on here know a qualified, reasonably priced plumber in the Nottingham Area who could do the work for us. It will make life so much easier for my Dad if it can be in within the next month or so.

    its not exactly a plumbers job, bathroom fitter more like - contact your local housing associations they will tell you who they use and might even help you - good luck

    Not in Nottingham so can’t help sorry, but not sure how this isn’t a plumbers job. I’m a plumber and we do a lot of alterations like this.

    Sorry to hear of this. I lost my dad to cancer. Cancer is a horrible disease. I wish I could have helped, but unfortunately I'm 450 miles away in Scotland. All the very best to you and your dad and wish him well with his treatment.
