"Guiding You Through CHC Appeals: Compassionate Expertise at Nellie Support"

Specialising in CHC (Continuing Health Care) appeals, Nellie Supports offers a guiding light for those entangled in the complexities of nurse funding and health care bureaucracy. Our dedicated team stands ready to navigate you through the critical CHC appeal process with empathy and professional insight.

With profound expertise in the National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care, we conduct meticulous assessments essential for successful nurse funding appeals. Our skilled social workers evaluate each individual's health needs across all domains, ensuring comprehensive consideration for your Continuing Health Care requirements.

Known as Continuing Health Care (CHC), this comprehensive care package is fully funded by the NHS in the UK for those with complex, ongoing healthcare needs outside of hospital care. The CHC program serves to meet the health-related necessities of individuals within their own environments or care facilities, ensuring their primary health needs are met with adequate support.

Eligibility for CHC funding requires a thorough assessment to determine if the individual's healthcare needs are substantial and cannot be addressed through conventional social care services. This process involves an initial NHS checklist and a detailed review to confirm eligibility for nurse funding.

The scope of CHC is extensive, offering services ranging from nursing, personal care, to wider social care essentials. Whether at home or in a care home, those eligible for CHC receive a custom plan, with costs fully covered by the NHS, ensuring tailored support for their unique health and social care requirements.

As an essential service, CHC plays a vital role, enabling those with significant health challenges to access the care and support they need, alleviating the economic impact on the individuals and their loved ones. Should the need for a CHC appeal arise, it is important for individuals and their families to understand the process to ensure continued support.

Our team conducts in-depth assessments to understand the full spectrum of an individual's social care needs. This assessment evaluates physical, mental, emotional, and social aspects of the individual's life, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of their overall situation. By identifying your care needs we can use this later as evidence at a DST or Appeal Meeting.

Following the assessment, we create a personalised care plan. This plan is tailored to address the specific needs identified during the care assessment. It outlines the type of care and support required, ensuring that these needs are met effectively and further evidencing whether the individual meets the criteria for CHC funding.

Document Review

In our CHC Appeals Service, we conduct a comprehensive review of all existing documents and records pertinent to the individual's health, care, and specific circumstances. This process includes examining health and social care records, previous assessments, care plans, and any other related documentation. Such a thorough review is essential to ensure we have a complete understanding of the individual's health and social care background and to identify where evidence may have been originally missed or misinterpreted.

Court Compliant Report Creation

Finally, we compile all the gathered information from our assessments, care plan, and comprehensive document review into a detailed, court-compliant report specifically for the CHC appeal. This report is meticulously prepared to adhere to legal standards, ensuring its effectiveness in the CHC appeal process. It provides a clear, comprehensive, and evidence-backed overview of the individual's circumstances, emphasizing the need and justification for the appropriate level of care and support and how it meets the CHC Criteria.

Stage 2

Understanding whether an individual qualifies for Continuing Health Care (CHC) and the potential for an appeal is a critical process, grounded in two essential assessments. These assessments are key in evaluating if the criteria for CHC funding are met.

The CHC Checklist serves as an initial gauge of an individual's health and care requirements. It examines a range of conditions and needs, offering a thorough snapshot of the individual’s health care status and laying the groundwork for funded nursing care considerations.

In our rigorous approach, the Care Review is instrumental. This review scrutinizes the person’s existing care arrangement to identify any aspects that align with Continuing Health Care qualifications or to pinpoint any oversight in the initial CHC assessment. Such meticulous analysis is pivotal in our commitment to determining eligibility for CHC funding.

Together, the Care Review and the CHC Checklist furnish us with a complete picture of an individual's health care needs. This comprehensive understanding equips us to offer transparent advice on the appropriateness of pursuing a CHC appeal based on the specific details of the case.
