NHS continuing care

Whether you are elderly or disabled, if you have a primary health need you may be entitled to have your care and accommodation funded entirely by the NHS.



NHS continuing care is the term used to describe a package of care arranged and funded entirely by the NHS for individuals who are not in hospital but have complex ongoing healthcare needs.

Eligibility is not based on diagnosis but depends on whether the ongoing care needs are complex, intense and/or unpredictable. There is a two stage formal assessment to determine eligibility. 

It is known that many individuals are wrongly denied NHS continuing care. It is extremely important to ensure that any assessment undertaken is evidenced-based and that the views of the individual or their carers are accurately recorded and considered. The assessment process is complex and knowledge of the national framework is essential.

We offer support in this area and can assist with retrospective claims, applications for continuing care, advocacy at assessments, appeals to independent review panels and ombudsman inquiries.
