NHS Continuing Healthcare Appeals

Care funding lawyer explains how to appeal against NHS Continuing Healthcare Decisions and how our Community Care team can help

CHC appeals and how we can assist

We are often contacted by families who have been through the NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) appeals process unsuccessfully, or who have lodged a request for a CHC funding 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 appealing continuing health care decisions. We are here to ensure you don’t have to battle against the 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 for assistance with an NHS Continuing Healthcare appeal, CHC funding appeal or a retrospective continuing healthcare claim. We have experience in dealing with a wide range of continuing healthcare appeal 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
