Hi Cynron.

Interesting info as I'm just in the process of selling the house to fund care for mum and dad. We may need to rush things or get some sort of bridging loan.

On the subject of continuing nursing care, I'd be interested if anyone has had any positive outcome from applying for continuing nursing care? We have just been told that it is very unlikely due to the overwhelming cost for the PCT if they allowed more people to get funding.

I read the following factsheet which just makes it seem like a real tough battle (still helpful though) on eligibility for continuing NHS care.pdf

Anyone had any luck with this?

Hi Charlie

my understanding is that there is a list of criteria that each PCT has for NHS Continuing Care. My assumption would be that if someone can be proved to meet the criteria, it is not something that can be ignored.

I'd suggest the AS Legal Beagle as a first step.
