Detail

The national framework for NHS continuing healthcare and NHS funded nursing care sets out the principles and processes for determining eligibility. The associated tools (a checklist, decision support tool and fast track pathway tool), which are designed to help clinicians and practitioners with the decision making process, have also been revised accordingly.

NHS continuing healthcare is an ongoing package of health and social care that is arranged and funded solely by the NHS where an individual is found to have a ‘primary health need’. Such care is provided to an individual aged 18 or over, to meet needs that have arisen as a result of disability, accident or illness.

The documents are provided in word format for use by those involved in the assessment process for NHS continuing healthcare.
