If you or someone you care for is in hospital you may be concerned about what will happen when the time comes to be discharged and sent home. If it is decided that the future care needs are complex and are primarily health needs, the NHS should continue to pay for that care, regardless of whether that care is at home or in a nursing home. This is called NHS Continuing Health Care Funding (NHS CHC).
We have a team of specialist lawyers who can help you make an application for NHS CHC or we can challenge or appeal a decision made against an existing application. This can result in the NHS paying for care fees in full – which can be a significant saving.
