SIA Campaigning

Dear NHS Canterbury and Coastal Clinical Commissioning Group,

I work for the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), the leading national user-led charity supporting spinal cord injured people and their families. Being a user led organisation SIA understand the challenges of living with a spinal cord injury (SCI). We strive to support all people living with SCI to access the services and support they need to stay healthy and live full, fulfilling and active lives.

Part of my role is to assist the Head of Public Affairs with FoI requests, such as the one that follows. As a request under the Freedom of Information Act, please provide the following information about the provision of NHS Continuing Healthcare for adults by your Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG):

1. How many adults in your CCG currently receive NHS Continuing Healthcare?

2. How many adults in your CCG currently receive each of the following:
a) Fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare packages of care?
b) Joint funded Local Authority / NHS Continuing Healthcare packages of care?

6. What was the total NHS Continuing Healthcare budget for adults in your CCG in 2016-17?

7. What was the actual amount spent on NHS Continuing Healthcare for adults by your CCG in 2016-17?

9. What is your CCG’s total NHS Continuing Healthcare budget for adults for each of the years 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20?

10. If your response to Question 9 shows you propose to maintain your NHS Continuing Healthcare budget at current levels or reduce your NHS Continuing Healthcare budget for adults in your CCG, please provide a full explanation of how you will achieve this without making unlawful decisions about eligibility or reducing the size of packages of care.

Many thanks for your help with this request.
