Code: BH 17/041 Continuing Healthcare Funding (CHC)

This course is mandatory for all staff undertaking Care Act assessments

 

To access the course click Continue in the box above.

 

Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding is National Health Service funding available to individuals to pay for their package of care and support when their primary support needs are due to their health needs.

 

 

Eligibility for Continuing Health Care Funding means that the provision of services that meet a person's health and social care needs are funded and delivered by the NHS and who has governance of this delivery.

 

 

Correctly identifying eligibility for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funding has financial benefits for the individual who might otherwise be self funding their care. It is illegal for a local authority to fund and provide care to those eligible for CHC funding (people who have a primary health care need) and without correct identification of people who might be eligible, the local authority might illegally fund and provide care to people, which would impact on the Community Care budget. Therefore, staff in Brighton & Hove City Council Assessment Services have an important role in identifying individuals who might be eligible for CHC Funding.
