The CCG will discuss with the patient how their needs will be met and their care managed, and by which organisation.
Other forms of care planning and provision might be appropriate. The patient’s local authority will have been made aware of the decision and will discuss with the patient whether or not they may be eligible for support from the local authority. Sometimes the NHS may still be involved in paying for part of the support a patient needs. Care involving both the local authority and NHS is sometimes known as a joint package of care.
Patients not eligible for NHS CHC remain entitled to use all the usual healthcare services available to everyone entitled to use the NHS, such as services provided by (for example) GP practices, hospital outpatient departments, clinics, etc.
If you do not qualify for NHS CHC, you may have to pay for some or all of your care. You may have to take a local authority means test to decide how much you should pay towards your personal care and accommodation if you are in a care home.
