NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding

Our Elderly, Care & Mental Capacity team acted on behalf of a client who was in a care home and whose needs were reviewed by the NHS with a view to assessing whether or not she was entitled to NHS Continuing Healthcare, which in effect would mean that her nursing home fees would be paid for by the NHS. Working in conjunction with the clients’ close friend (she has no family) we worked through the decision support tool and put our case together. We attended the meeting with the representative from the NHS and were able to negotiate and secure NHS Continuing Healthcare funding for the client.
