We can help you get a Continuing Healthcare assessment. The initial assessment consists of a short form which can be completed by a nurse, doctor, other healthcare professional or social worker. You, or the person you look after, will be told what’s happening, and be asked for consent.
If the initial assessment shows that you, or the person you look after, may be eligible for funding, you will get a full assessment from a specialist team from NHS in Sefton. This team will include any health and social care professionals already involved in the care of the person being assessed.
To find out more and to get an assessment, talk to your social worker or GP, or call the council’s contact centre on 0345 140 0845.
