Care costs & The Care Act

Need for a proactive approach

The relative responsibilities of individuals, the NHS and local authorities to fund and arrange care are very complex and subject to change over time. In addition, as an individual’s medical and general social needs change, the scope of available publicly funded support can also change. Yet enhanced funding  or support often is not provided unless proactively sought.

Specialist knowledge and support

  • NHS Continuing Health Care reviews & challenges
