In the news: an interview with Tim Davies
Have you read MoneyMagpie's interview with Compass CHC's Managing Director Tim Davies?
With the cost of care becoming prohibitively expensive and the very real issue many thousands of family’s face regarding how to fund care in our later years, Tim was asked to explain what NHS continuing healthcare funding is and how it can help (NHS continuing healthcare is the free healthcare funding provided by the NHS which can be received in any setting outside of hospital including at home, within a hospice or in a care home (either residential or nursing). The package of care is available to people who have significant ongoing healthcare needs, and it covers 100% of care costs).
Tim explains the process for applying, the time it should take for a decision to be reached and outlines some of the problems families may encounter during the assessment process.
We hope you enjoy reading the full interview.
Do not delay, contact us today. We specialise in securing funding from day 1 and assisting families with the process from the outset. Don’t wait until a negative decision has been made and it is then necessary to have to appeal the outcome. This can take many months and all the while the patient will be having to pay the cost of their care.
