Continuing Healthcare Reviews
NHS Continuing Healthcare is the name given to a package of care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals outside of hospital who have ongoing healthcare needs.
You can receive Continuing Healthcare in any setting, including your own home or a care home. NHS Continuing Healthcare is free, unlike help from social services for which a financial charge may be made depending on your income and savings.
In your own home, this means that the NHS will pay for healthcare (services from a community nurse or specialist therapist) and personal care (help with bathing, dressing and laundry). In a Care Home the NHS also pays for your care home fees, including board and accommodation.
Once eligible your care will be funded by the NHS but this is subject to review, and should your care needs change the funding arrangements may also change.
