Continuing healthcare

NHS continuing healthcare (CHC) is a package of care arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals who are not in hospital but who have an on-going complex, intense or unpredictable healthcare need.  You can receive CHC services in any setting including your own home. 

If you are eligible for NHS continuing healthcare, NHS Kernow will fund the care needed to meet your identified care needs. 

You may find it useful to read our CHC Information leaflet which is available here.

The links to the right of this page will tell you more about continuing healthcare within Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly.
