NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded nursing care

NHS Continuing Healthcare may be available for your clients who have significant, long-term healthcare needs and are receiving care in a care home or in their own home. Any of your clients eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare will have all the costs of their care paid for by the NHS. It doesn’t matter how much they're earning or what capital they have. It's not a means-tested benefit.

What action should be taken?

If your client believes they could be eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare, the first step is to approach their GP.
