If an individual is in a nursing or care home because of physical or mental health needs, the cost of their care should be covered by the NHS Continuing Healthcare funding scheme, regardless of the individual’s wealth. However, with around 40% of Britain’s 440,000 care home residents self-funding their care, thousands of families in England and Wales could be wrongly paying care fees.
Hugh James Nursing Care is one of the leading national experts in the recovery of wrongly paid care home fees; our specialist nursing care team have successfully recovered over £125 million for our clients since the department was set up in 2006.
NHS Continuing Healthcare is a package of care funded by the NHS where an individual’s care is fully funded by the NHS regardless of their wealth or savings. Continuing Healthcare may be available to you if your main requirement for care is down to health related problems. It can be received in hospital, a nursing home or at the individual’s home. This is often described as ‘fully funded care’.
If you believe that you or a family member may be paying for care which should be funded by the NHS Continuing Healthcare scheme, then the first step is to contact the Hugh James Nursing Care team for a free no obligation assessment.
We will send you a detailed questionnaire through the post. Once you have completed and returned this to us, a member of our specialist Nursing Care legal team will assess your case and will discuss whether they believe you should be eligible for funding with you. This first stage is a free assessment and there is no obligation on you to proceed with a legal case after this point.
The vast majority of our clients are on a no win, no fee structure and we will offer this whenever and wherever possible. This means that if your case is successful, we will take a percentage of the money you recover. If the claim is pursued and lost, you pay us nothing.
