Our team here at Continuing Health care Direct specialise in securing NHS funding for those who are entitled to receive financial support from the NHS. We can also manage not only new claims but also recover care costs already paid as well as in circumstances of disputing a funding decision already provided to yourself or a loved one.

If you have a primary health need and are struggling to cover your care costs, funding can cover 100% of an eligible individual’s care costs whether that is in a care home or even the claimants own home. This specific social and care package is provided regardless of the location in which the care is provided and the claimants financial situation has no affect on their eligibility criteria. Funding is based purely on the care requirements of the individual, and the National Health Service has a duty of care to provide financial support to those who are assessed as being eligible.

To ensure each individual receives the correct level of information and guidance in regards to Continuing Healthcare, the National Framework for Continuing Health care provides the guidelines for the funded care package. It includes the eligibility criteria as well as the process that must be followed by healthcare professionals who carry out the assessment.
