NHS Continuing Healthcare is a NHS funded care package which is provided to those who are a UK resident, aged 18 or above whose primary need is a health need. Each individual’s care requirements differ, and this care package is based on a case by case basis, to ensure that each claimant receives the fair assessment that they are entitled to.
