What is continuing healthcare?
Between 2004 and 2012, thousands of people across England and Wales paid for continuing nursing care which should have been funded by the NHS. Under the National Health Service Act 2006, anyone who paid for continuing primary health care needs during this time may be entitled to reclaim the fees that were paid.
AVH Legal is committed to seeing clients’ claims through to fruition, ensuring they receive the money they are entitled to.
Frequently asked questions
1. How many cases are currently being processed by the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs)?
A number of solicitors and private individuals have filed over 60,000 cases for retrospective continuing care - this has caused many delays to the process and likely to add to the time which it takes to conclude.
2. How long will it take for my claim to be settled in full?
We estimate these cases could take one to two years to conclude.
3. Who are we recovering monies from?
We are liaising with the Clinical Commissioning Groups (previously the Primary Care Trusts).
4. How often can we expect an update on progress?
CCGs only give updates when things happen and clients will be informed of these developments.
5. What is the process for recovering monies?
There is a complete postcode lottery as to how the cases are being dealt with. Each CCG has their own process and are still developing their capability to deal with the unexpected high volumes of reviews.
6. Why is AVH Legal the best legal representative for me?
We are working closely with all relevant parties to agree a clear process and to ensure that those who deserve retrospective continuing care funding are dealt with fairly and given accurate legal advice.
