Will the Equality and Human Rights Commission challenge potentially discriminatory continuing healthcare policies?

In March the Commission wrote to thirteen Clinical Commissioning Group (including Coventry and Rugby, Warwickshire North and Redditch and Bromsgrove) about limits they had put in place on the amount they would pay for continuing healthcare packages at home.

The result of these limits could arguably force people into a care home, in breach of the National Framework, the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Public Sector Equality Duty. The CCG’s should have responded to the Commission by early April, and we will be watching this case carefully on behalf of a number of our clients.
