NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) is a free package of health and social care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals who have on-going primary health needs.
You can get CHC funding in any setting including your own home or a care/residential home. You cannot get CHC funding if you are in hospital.
You or your family can request NHS Bury to carry out a initial assessment to see if you screen in for a full assessment for CHC.
To request an initial assessment contact either the CHC Team on 0161 762 3119/3198 or Adult Care Connect and Direct
