We need anyone who might be eligible for NHS Continuing Health Care funding to know that it exists so I suppose no publicity is bad publicity. But the story the BBC is running today about money from individual budgets being spent on what are seen as unnecessary luxuries (e.g. someone having a summer house because they needed their own space) is a bit worrying. No doubt as in most if not all such schemes there are occasional abuses but the answer is better monitoring systems. Probably austerity-related staffing cuts have made this difficult.
