NHS Continuing Healthcare

The first module of this two-part course includes an overview of CHC and information about how assessments are made, including links to all the relevant documents.

In the second module you’ll learn about what happens after the assessment is made, including details about the provision of services and direct payments. This part of the course also goes into the options available to those who are not eligible for CHC (for example, NHS-funded nursing care and the appeals process).

When you complete this course you will automatically get a certificate with their name, CPD hours, date and learning objectives outlined.

  • What continuing healthcare is

  • How personal health budgets can be used

The course was relevant to my role, checked on my learning, provided feedback and was easy to use.
I found this subject very interesting. It is an area that i will need to be more knowledgeable in my role as a social worker.

The course is sufficient as an overview
As this is a new area it was important that it was very clear – which I feel it was.

Rachael Asling

Very engaging and provided a good overview. Use of example situations was helpful in order to apply the learning.
Familiar with this topic but was interesting all the same
