What is Continuing Healthcare?
The NHS is responsible for providing care for thousands of individuals in need, whether this is accommodation or specialist care. If the need for care is a health need, the NHS is required to provide care costs in full. However, many people have never been informed about this NHS funding, otherwise known as Continuing Healthcare.
The problem that commonly arises is the difficulty in securing Continuing Healthcare, let alone understanding what is Continuing Healthcare. Providing this funding is an expensive process for the NHS as it is also to cover the costs of care privately, depending on an individuals location and needs, the average weekly care costs in the UK can cost in the region of £800, or in the excess of over £40,000. Nevertheless, hundreds of individuals or their families who should be receiving Continuing Healthcare funding sadly are not.
As a result of this you could be paying for unnecessary healthcare costs for you or your loved ones. NHS Continuing Healthcare is for those who are assessed as having a Primary Health Need, if you are a UK resident and are over the age of 18 with a Primary Health Need, you should fit the criteria and could be eligible for Continuing Healthcare funding.
