Enquiry re previously un-assessed eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare funding
Dear NHS City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group,
Sir David Nicholson, then Chief Executive of the NHS in England, requested in a letter on 15/03/2012 that individuals or their representatives notify the relevant PCT in respect of previously
un-assessed periods of time where there is evidence that the individual should have been assessed for eligibility for NHS CHC funding with respect to that care.
1/. Please let me know how many applications were received by the CCG, and/or the CCGs/PCTs it replaced, before the first deadline Sir David gave in that letter, ie 30/12/2012?
2/. Of those applications received, how many reached the stage of being processed by the CCG, and/or the CCGs/PCTs it replaced?
3/. Of those which reached the stage of being processed by the CCG, and/or the CCGs/PCTs it replaced, how many have so far resulted in a Decision Letter?
4/. Of those which have reached the stage of a Decision Letter, how many applications have been found not eligible for Continuing Healthcare Funding?
5/. Of those which have reached the stage of a Decision Letter, how many applications have been found not eligible for Continuing Healthcare Funding for reasons relating to original documents or records having been lost or destroyed?
