Continuing healthcare

NHS continuing healthcare, also known as "fully funded NHS care", is free care outside of hospital that is arranged and funded by the NHS. 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 (PDF).

In June 2018, Cornwall Council and NHS Kernow recommissioned a new contract for home care services.
