Patients requiring Specialist Nursing in their own homes will normally be funded through continuing healthcare. This is an NHS funded package of care for people who have significant ongoing healthcare needs.
Individuals eligible for NHS continuing healthcare, have the right to a Personal Health Budget, this means that money to pay for their care is allocated to them to fund and manage. Personal Health Budgets allow more choice and control over the services and care people receive and can be used to pay for a wider range of items and services. Essentially having a personal health budget allows people and their families to have control over who cares for them and as a health and social homecare provider the team are passionate about this and can assist, hold or manage personal health budgets if their clients would like them too.
