Mon 9 May 2016 - 12:59 by Unbelievable

How often do CCGs try and pay significantly less than the amount they are supposed to reimburse following a final decision that an individual was entitled to NHS Continuing Healthcare and that care home fees were paid incorrectly by an individual or their relatives for a previous period of care?

Interview by Nicola Mackintosh - Pamela Couglans Lawyer on NHS continuing care

Sat 11 Jun 2016 - 6:29 by nikkid

Dear All,

Has anyone been able to achieve this without having to get their local …
