NHS continuing healthcare is the name given to a package of care that is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals who are not in hospital who have complex ongoing healthcare needs.
The public information leaflet is a guide for individuals who may be in need of ongoing care and support from health and social care professionals as a result of disability, accident or illness, and explains the process used to determine whether the individual is eligible for care funded entirely by the NHS.
