The previously unassessed periods of care (PUPoC) group of clients were based on the Department of Health and Social Care guidelines for periods between 1 April 2004 and 31 March 2012.
NHS Kernow has met the deadline imposed by NHS England of giving yes or no answers to the 574 cases that they have investigated. There are a cohort of patients who are appealing these decisions.
If you think you may have had a period of unassessed care after 31 March 2012, please contact the appeal and review team in the first instance. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
