NHS Funding 

The NHS provides two types of non-means tested funding: Funding Nursing Care and Continuing Healthcare. It is also possible to claim Continuing Healthcare retrospectively, for care fees already paid. 

Continuing Healthcare funding is notoriously difficult to receive but our Health and Social Care team have an expanding portfolio of success stories.


Our Health and Social Care team at Pitmans can help to lessen the burden at what can be a very emotional time by taking you through the appeals processes step-by-step. 

We can gather evidence and prepare written arguments to support your appeal and identify any errors in the NHS’s process.
