Dear NHS Basildon and Brentwood 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.

a) Fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare packages of care?
b) Joint funded Local Authority / NHS Continuing Healthcare packages of care?
