NHS continuing healthcare (CHC) is the name given to a package of care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for people aged 18 and above who have been assessed by the service as having a primary health need. NHS Continuing Healthcare is not awarded due to disease or diagnosis, nor is it awarded based on who provides the care or where it is provided.
Funding can apply to any setting, including your own home or a care home. It is free, unlike support provided by local authorities, for which you may have to pay, depending on your income and savings.
