If an individual is in a nursing or care home because of physical or mental health needs, the cost of their care should be the responsibility of the NHS. However, around 40% of Britain’s 440,000 care home residents are self-funding their care, meaning that thousands of families in England and Wales are incorrectly footing the bill.
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 £80 million for our clients.
If you believe that you or a family member may be paying for care which should be funded by the NHS, then the first step is to contact one of our team members to discuss your case. This is a no obligation discussion and our team will do everything they can to talk you through the process. It’s also possible to claim retrospectively for a family member who may have sadly passed away.
Contact our team using the details on the right of this page, or make an enquiry using the link below and one of our team members will be in touch as soon as possible.
The Welsh Government has announced a deadline of the 31 October to register claims for care received between 1 October 2014 and 30 October 2015. If you or someone you care for, paid care fees within this time period due to primary health needs, you must register your claim before 31 October 2016. Find out more here.
