NHS continuing healthcare

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 and have complex ongoing healthcare needs. You can get more information about continuing healthcare from the NHS.

This information leaflet about NHS continuing healthcare provides information for people who may be in need of NHS continuing health and NHS-funded nursing care as a result of disability, accident or illness. A video may explain it more.
