NHS continuing healthcare booklet

Written by Foundation for people with learning difficultiesDate 05 Sep 2012

ConNHSCNHS Continuing Healthcare is funding for a complete package of health and social care that is paid for by the NHS. This is for people who have been assessed to have a 'primary health need'. There is a system of assessments that will be arranged by the NHS to decide if someone is eligible for NHS CHC. If they are, the NHS will decide how much money to allocate for their support and will agree a plan. It is really important that this is done in a person centred way and involves you as family members.
