Continuing healthcare is a package of care provided to an adult (aged 18 years or over), to meet significant physical or mental health needs that have arisen because of disability, an accident, or illness. The care package is provided for a set period of time, and then reviewed.

Our role is to carry out the assessment, in accordance with NHS framework for the implementation of continuing healthcare 2012.

The care itself may be provided by a variety of different organisations, in your own home, in care homes or in a hospice

The care package is funded solely by the NHS, and it is free for those that are assessed to be eligible. This determination is based on having a primary need for health as opposed to the help provided by social services, for which there may be a charge, depending on income and savings.

See NHS Choices for more information.
