Care Homes and Continuing NHS Healthcare


NHS Funded Nursing Care

Some people in nursing care homes are entitled to receive help with their costs, and the term NHS Funded Nursing Care refers to care provided by a registered nurse in a designated nursing care home. The UHB is responsible for providing NHS Funded Nursing Care for two groups of people - those who fund their own care and residents of nursing homes who meet specific nursing eligibility criteria. We employ Nurse Assessors to help with this responsibility. 

Continuing NHS Healthcare

Continuing NHS Healthcare (also known as CHC) is a package of care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals who have been assessed as having a primary health need.

Useful Resources

If you’re thinking about making a Continuing Healthcare application, our team provides awareness sessions concerning the process on the first Monday of each month.
