Tell us your views on policies around Continuing Healthcare and Complex Care

Tell us your views on policies around Continuing Healthcare and Complex Care
06 June 2018

NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) is for people with long-term complex health needs who qualify for free social care arranged and funded solely by the NHS. This includes Funded Nursing Care (FNC) or a contribution to a Joint Package of Care (JPC).

All Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are committed to providing the right care in the right place and at the right time. This means safe, high-quality and clinically-effective healthcare services which are available fairly and equitably across the local area, making the best use of NHS resources.

With this in mind, we are asking patients, carers, the general public, staff and other stakeholders about planned revisions to the Commissioning Policy for Eastern Cheshire and for NHS South Cheshire CCG, NHS Vale Royal CCGNHS West Cheshire CCG and NHS Wirral CCG.

This is to ensure that the packages of care provided are aligned with these values and realised across all of Cheshire and the Wirral.

You can read the draft policy here, and then provide feedback via our online survey.

We value your feedback and thank you in advance for taking the time to tell us your experiences.

The survey is open until Monday 16 July 2018.

Should you require further information or have any questions please contact cheshireandwirral.chc-cc@nhs.net
