Help improve NHS continuing healthcare

Posted on: May 5th, 2016 by Tim Saunders

The Failing to Care coalition of charities, which is supported by Beacon, campaigns to improve NHS continuing healthcare.

NHS continuing healthcare, also known as NHS continuing care, is a package of care that is arranged and funded by the NHS. It is free of charge to the person receiving the care and it’s provided on an ongoing basis outside of hospital. Eligibility rests not on the condition the person has, but on whether the person in question has a primary health need – which can be hard to determine.

In order to improve NHS continuing healthcare we need to understand what the system does well, and where it is letting people down. So, we would like as many people as possible to answer a survey detailing their experience of this system.

NHS continuing healthcare is available in England – so we’re only asking people who have applied for it in England to respond to this survey.

Your responses to this survey will help us work for change. Thank you in advance for supporting this important issue.
