NHS Continuing Healthcare
A guide for individuals who may be in
need of ongoing ‘continuing care’ support from health and social
care professionals as a result of disability, accident or illness,
and explains the process used to determine whether an individual is
eligible for care funded entirely by the NHS.
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.
