Continuing health care

Continuing healthcare is care arranged and funded by the NHS for people who have been assessed as needing care to manage a health problem.

The conversations around whether a need is health related or social care related, can be complex. 

  • Peter Garside, a local man, has developed a website to help people with their applications for continuing healthcare. In it he tells the story of his experience of making a continuing healthcare application for his wife Pauline and successfully appealing an incorrect decision.    https://continuinghealthcare.wordpress.com/
  • Care To Be Different was set up by Angela Sherman after her own parents’ experience of the UK care system. She has developed this website to provide practical information about NHS Continuing Healthcare funding and other care matters. http://caretobedifferent.co.uk/
