NHS Continuing Healthcare and Personal Health Budgets can provide funding and planning to help people with complex on-going healthcare needs.

NHS Continuing Healthcare

NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) is a package of care that is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals who are not in hospital but have complex on-going healthcare needs.

If you are eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare, you can receive NHS continuing healthcare:

  • At home – the NHS will pay for healthcare, such as services from a community nurse or specialist therapist, and personal care, such as help with bathing, dressing and laundry.
  • In a care home – as well as healthcare and personal care, the NHS will pay for your care home fees, including board and accommodation.

NHS continuing healthcare is free, unlike social and community care services provided by local authorities.

Personal Health Budget

A personal health budget is an amount of money that is given directly to a person receiving NHS care to pay for their help and support. It is part of a care plan that is agreed between the person, their carers and their local NHS team.
