I've previously replaced like-with-like. But you cannot get a 2009 rear wheel now anywhere. if I use a 2010 one will it be compatible with the brake? And is the diameter different (i.e would I need to replace both of the rear wheels? buggypitstop who are near me, will do the job for £80 approx, but they say that some sort of modification is needed to the brake, so £45 for 2 wheels + £36 labour charge. If I could just buy the wheels else where and fit them my self it will obviously be cheaper.

right, going to update my own unanswered thread in case it helps anyone else....

I tried my friend's bee + wheels on my buggy. They fit oK, the diameter difference was negligible. The brakes did engage but not as securely as the original wheel.

In the end I called back buggypitstop and asked if they had an old second hand bee rear wheel knocking around. They did and I bought it. If in the future I need a wheel and cannot get an original by phoning around, I guess I have options.
