For example, if you or a relative has nursing needs when they are discharged from hospital, or if they are in residential care and their needs change, an initial CHC checklist assessment will need to be undertaken to see if they have a primary health need and are eligible for financial assistance or they have to pay for care.
If you are already funding your own care, you may be able to reclaim care home fees.
Challenging CHC decisions can be a long process and you only have six months in which to request a review of the decision. We can give you expert advice and assistance with the CHC appeals process, as well as the subsequent stages of the application, to help make it as stress-free as possible.
When it comes to the appeals process, we can provide specialist care funding advice:
Our professional team has been successful in numerous appeals regarding CHC funding, local authority assistance and property disregards. This can be hugely beneficial to you – for instance, a successful appeal of a CHC funding judgement can see all nursing care fees not only refunded but paid for by the NHS.
