NHS Continuing Healthcare
HFMA (2019) have produced a useful briefing on 'How it works – NHS continuing healthcare' which gives an overview of the NHS CHC rules and process, picking up some of the terms that are commonly used, but may not be fully understood.
'NHS continuing healthcare (NHS CHC) is an area of significant expenditure for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), supporting some of the most vulnerable people in the population. It is an area of health and social care where the distinction between the two services is blurred and the legislation governing who is responsible for what can be confusing'.
