NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding isn’t just for the elderly. Any adult aged 18 and over is entitled to an assessment to see if they are eligible for free-funded NHS care.
Farley Dwek Solicitors have the unique skill set and expertise required for assessing NHS Continuing Healthcare eligibility for young people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, complex physical disabilities and additional medical needs including progressive and degenerative conditions.
Following the assessment meeting, our nurse will produce a detailed report which we will send to you, setting out their assessment of your relative’s care needs. This report follows the same format as the Decision Support Tool (DST) used by the NHS when determining an individual’s eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding.
The report will help you to understand whether, in our view, there is any realistic prospect of arguing that your relative should potentially qualify for NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding.
If our nurse’s report concludes that your relative may not qualify for funding at the moment, you will be able to use the report as a baseline and for comparison purposes, when monitoring important changes in their condition, in case they meet the funding criteria at any future reassessment. Furthermore, the report will also give you the reassurance of knowing that the matter has been assessed objectively by a skilled nurse who has a wealth of experience in this specialised field.
If, following the Clinical Review Service, we believe that your relative could potentially qualify for NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding, we can offer you further specialist services to assist and guide you through the NHS assessment process or you can use the report to help you to apply for funding yourself.
Our Clinical Review Service can also be used prior to considering whether to appeal a decision where (a) funding has been rejected, or (b) existing funding is withdrawn.
What the Clinical Review Service includes:
The Clinical Review Service is offered on a fixed price basis and includes: all administration costs, the time and travel costs for our nurse to visit you and your relative in their care environment, the assessment of your relative’s care needs based on a discussion with you/your relative, a review of available records (if appropriate), a written report, and a further telephone discussion with you based on that report. There may be an additional cost if we have to obtain and review the records after the CRS has taken place. Of course, our nurse will also be able to answer any detailed questions you may have about all aspects of the assessment process on the day.
What Our Clients Say About Us
“We contacted Farley Dwek to ask them to support us with an upcoming Continuing Healthcare assessment of our disabled son.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, our son has been shielded at home since the March 2019 national lockdown. We are very tired and exhausted caring for him, plus worrying about the high risk of him catching the virus. Owing to the pandemic, all NHS departments switched from face-to-face appointments to remote online appointments instead. It was a very challenging task for us to do a full CHC assessment with at least ten professionals in attendance.
After we received the CHC pre-Checklist report, we were even more worried about the full assessment. Several care domains were marked lower than we anticipated. We did not feel that the report reflected the true status of our son’s medical situation.
After online and Facebook searches, we contacted Farley Dwek Solicitors. The response was very prompt and efficient. Donna (the assessment nurse) did an exceptional job of supporting us. She is easy to communicate with, is very compassionate, and has excellent knowledge. We feel the service is excellent, and we are very grateful. The outcome of the assessment was that our son should receive full funding.” – Mrs S.
