Support for NHS-funded home care packages
As one of the country’s most sophisticated home care providers, we regularly work with clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and continuing healthcare (CHC) teams, including clinical leads and nurse assessors, to arrange packages of NHS funded home care across England and Wales.
The extensive clinical experience of our nursing team allows us to work in partnership with all the relevant organisations to organise fast-track, 24-hour home care packages for people with complex healthcare needs, such as those with a type of dementia. This involves working with other organisations on completing and reviewing decision support tools (DSTs) for home care.
With a unique understanding of CHC teams’ requirements, we place special care and attention on complying with the national framework for NHS continuing healthcare and NHS funded nursing care.

We continue to work closely with CHC teams and families to organise person-centred packages of care. As a home care provider that is passionate about patient/service user control, choice and independence, we welcome the personal budget scheme and the new options it brings for people living in the UK.
We work extremely hard to aid the transition process and ensure that patient/service users are receiving a high quality service that is in line with NHS personal care budget rights and stipulations.Personal health budgets
