Continuing and nursing care

What is NHS Continuing Healthcare?
NHS Continuing Healthcare is the name given to a package of care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals outside of hospital who have on-going healthcare needs. You can receive continuing healthcare in any setting, including your own home or a care home. NHS continuing healthcare is free, unlike help from social services for which a financial charge may be made depending on your income and savings.

What is NHS-funded nursing care?
By law, local authorities cannot provide registered nursing care. For individuals in care homes with nursing, registered nurses are usually employed by the care home itself and, in order to fund this nursing care, the NHS, makes a payment directly to the care home. The Department of Health sets the weekly rate for NHS-funded nursing care nationally.
