NHS Continuing Healthcare
NHS continuing healthcare (continuing healthcare) is the name given to a package of care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals outside of hospital who have ongoing health care needs. You can receive continuing healthcare in any setting, including your own home or in a care home.
Residents in Sutton with ongoing care needs requiring assistance may be eligible to receive fully funded continuing healthcare. If an individual is found not to be eligible for fully funded NHS continuing healthcare and is a resident in a nursing home they may be eligible to receive the funded nursing contribution.
For greater choice over how health and care needs are met, continuing healthcare recipients may like to consider a personal health budget.
