NHS Continuing Healthcare is a package of care some people need to receive as a result of disability, accident or illness. People who meet the eligibility requirements have the full cost of their care and accomodation funded by the NHS.
To find out if you or your relative/friend may be eligible you can ask your GP, Social Worker or another health professional for a 'Checklist assessment'. This is the first stage in the assessment process.
Beacon is working in partnership with NHS England to provide free information and advice for people in England who need independent and specialist support in relation to NHS Continuing Healthcare.
You can call them on 0345 548 0300 to speak to a trained advisor.
