In order to receive funding for NHS continuing healthcare, you will have to be assessed. When the assessment results in a decision that you are not eligible, there is an appeal process.
If you are not happy with the decision, get in contact the team manager within 6 months of receipt of the written decision about your eligibility.

If they are unable to help you with your concerns, they will pass your details on to our appeals team. This will begin our local resolution process.

Independent review panel

If we have been unable to resolve your appeal, you can apply for a review of our decision. The NHS England independent review panel process is co-ordinated by the NHS continuing healthcare teams in each of the 4 regions of NHS England.
