NHS Continuing Healthcare, also known as NHS continuing care or “fully funded NHS care”, is free care outside of hospital that is arranged and funded by the NHS. This means that you will receive care and support to meet your assessed needs at no cost to you.
More information about the assessment process for NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS nursing care is available on the NHS Choices website.
Information is also available in a public information leaflet produced by the Department of Health.
