Appealing Against NHS Continuing Healthcare Decisions

NHS Continuing Healthcare appeals and how we can assist.

We are often contacted by families who have been through the NHS Continuing Healthcare appeals process unsuccessfully, or who have lodged a request for a review, and are now unsure as to the next steps to take.

We are able to assist individuals who are receiving care, their families, Attorneys, Deputies and Executors in dealing with this complex area of Community Care law, which can be time consuming and often emotionally exhausting. There is a noticeable lack of reliable information in the public domain for those who feel they are battling against a raft of form filling, incomplete assessments, procedural errors and eligibility criteria that are open to wide interpretation by the NHS.

Contact the Community Care Law Team if you would like assistance in dealing with any stage of the NHS Continuing Healthcare review process. We have experience in dealing with a wide range of continuing healthcare applications at different stages, and can provide advice on:

  • previous DST / Checklist assessments
  • outcomes of local NHS panel meetings
  • making written representations and/or attending assessment meetings and Panel Hearings on your behalf
  • prospects of success
  • alternative routes to securing funding for care if appropriate
  • current and retrospective applications

To speak to a specialist Community Care Law solicitor, contact us today on 01273 609911, or email info@ms-solicitors.co.uk.
