Previously Unassessed Periods of Care (PUPC)

The previously unassessed periods of care (PUPoC) group of clients were based on the Department of Health (DOH) guidelines for periods between 1 April 2014 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.

The decision of a PUPoC two phase is currently with the DOH for consultation for the period after March 2012.
