Dear NHS Halton 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):

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