If you have a primary healthcare need the NHS should fund the full cost of nursing care irrespective of financial circumstances. An assessment is made by the NHS to ascertain whether you are eligible for continuous healthcare funding. If you did not have an assessment or you were assessed but disagree with the decision then you have the right to challenge the decision.
The distinction between qualifying or not can be difficult; if you would like our assistance in understanding whether or not you qualify, or in challenging a negative decision, then please contact our team of specialist lawyers.
Our lawyers’ recent experience includes:
Often we are asked to advise the family of a client who no longer has capacity about all types of care issue concerns including paying the fees, continuing health care assessments, benefit claims, sales of property, other funding issues and finding where to obtain investment advice for any funds.
We also act as professional attorneys for a number of clients who may have no close family or they do not want to trouble them but the client still needs help and assistance at that time.
