This is a package of care funded entirely by the NHS depending upon whether or not they have a primary health care need.
If an individual's primary need is a healthcare need, then the NHS is responsible for picking up the costs of care whether that care is in a residential care home, hospice or an individual's own home.
The whole process is complicated and, despite a National Framework being in place, subjectivity and inconsistency still exist when applying the eligibility criteria.
We can assist you in claiming for Continuing Healthcare funding, which includes appeals and Ombudsman investigations in the even you are unsuccessful in your claim.
We also have experience in making retrospective applications for funding both on behalf of those currently in care and those who have since died. This potentially means that either the person in care of the estate or the deceased may receive a refund of care fees previously paid.
Whether you wish to explore current or retrospective claims for NHS Continuing Healthcare funding, please complete our enquiry form.
