Continuing Healthcare Funding

What is Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC Funding)?

People who require complex or palliative care, or who have ongoing health conditions may be eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC Funding).

It provides a continuing care package at home and it is fully funded by the NHS and is available on a permanent or temporary basis, depending on the circumstances. We have summarised CHC for you below, but you can read about it in full here.

Am I Eligible for Continuing Healthcare?

Individual needs will need to be assessed to determine if you qualify for continuing healthcare. An assessment can be requested by contacting the local Clinical Commissioning Group CCG directly or via the local GP.

CCG is responsible for the provision of NUS Services as well as holding the budget for continuing healthcare funding.

A GP, Social Worker, or Nuse will initially assess the person’s needs to determine if you are eligible for a full assessment or if you are not eligible at all. You will be assessed based on your specific care needs and not a particular health condition.

If you would like to contact your local Clinical Commissioning Group you can do so here.

What Does a Full Continuing Healthcare Assessment Consist of?

After the successful initial assessment by a GP, Social Worker or Nurse, a full Continuing Healthcare assessment will be conducted by a team of healthcare professionals who will consider the following:

  • The type of help needed.
  • How complex the needs are.
  • How much risk is involved if the appropriate help is not received.

To make sure that your opinions and wishes are considered, you should always be fully involved in the assessment. It should always also be undertaken with at least two healthcare professionals who are already involved in your care.

The types of different needs that will be assessed include; mobility, medication, cognition, nutrition, and breathing. Each will be graded as either; no needs, low, moderate, high, severe, or priority.

The local Clinical Commissioning Group CCG is then presented with the recommendation that has been agreed upon by the healthcare professionals for approval. Following the approval the CCG arranges for a care package based on the individual requirements. In special instances, a fast track continuing healthcare assessment and package can be implemented for those whose conditions are deteriorating rapidly.
