The process of being assessed for Continuing Healthcare, and successfully gaining it, is complex. However, our specialist knowledge of the law and the NHS will ensure no family or patient is exposed to incorrect decision making and the failure to adhere to due process - a process that everyone is entitled to receive, promptly and efficiently.
Every patient who suffers ill health is entitled to be considered for a Continuing Healthcare assessment. And if that assessment reveals a ‘primary health need’, the NHS should fund their care in whatever setting he or she chooses. Most patients are cared for in a residential or nursing home, but few know they can also choose to remain in their own home with a fully funded care package.
Paladin aims to inform patients of their rights and choices. We aim to empower vulnerable patients and families, providing advice and practical solutions which can offer creative and flexible options.
