NHS Continuing Health Care (CHC) for Adult Services
Course Provider: Bond Solon via Teams
Reaching a decision about whether a person has a "primary health need" is often highly complex.
To achieve positive outcomes for the adult concerned, it is essential that professionals understand the relevant legislation, guidance, case law, processes, policies and procedures, and the roles and responsibilities of different agencies underpinning this complex area.
This one-day course will teach delegates to understand the relevant Government guidance and how decisions are made about NHS Continuing Health Care eligibility as well as to avoid pitfalls in the decision-making process. Delegates will consider the screening and assessment process, as well as the process of reviews and appeals of continuing care decisions.
