We are delighted to welcome Rachel Burley-Stower back to Stewarts Soundbites.

Last time Rachel joined us, Continuing Healthcare Funding, we explored NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC), dispelled common misconceptions, discussed eligibility and offered top tips for securing CHC provision.

In this episode, Rachel explained the funding and services available from local authority services when a person is ineligible for NHS continuing healthcare. She will address:

  • Capital rules
  • Capital for those in residential care vs. at home
  • Income rules
  • The impact of personal injury settlements (and the issue of double recovery)
  • Eligibility
  • Future concerns
