I am frequently asked questions about NHS Continuing healthcare by clients. Often these questions are not confined to the assessment process, but to wider issues relating to the process. Below is a list of FAQ’s that may be of help to those of you going through the NHS continuing healthcare process.
Having a loved one who is entering the palliative phase of their life, is a distressing and worrying time. It is also a time when care needs maybe increasing and / or fluctuating. Therefore, it is important that our loved ones care is arranged and funded as quickly as possible.
As I reflect on 2019, one of the most pressing areas of concern that has remained a constant has been the misconceptions and confusion surrounding the NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) process. Families have not been given the opportunity to access the process for their loved ones, some not even informed that a referral for an assessment has been made.
