Continuing Healthcare Assessments

 

Our CHC Assessment service supports local authorities, health providers and commissioning groups to make a positive, lasting impact on people and communities nationwide. Our management team has over 50 years’ experience in the health and social care market, delivering flexible, value-for-money services and sustainable change.

What we do

As a market leading provider in community healthcare services, our assessment service is designed to assist CCGs and local authorities with all aspects of the eligibility and assessment process for continuing healthcare and funded nursing care patients. Working as a trusted partner, we’ll work with clients to assess their current challenges as well as:

  • Clearing outstanding and overdue eligibility assessments
  • CHC assessment reviews
  • Independent assessments
  • Interim staffing for CHC teams
  • Cost saving/efficiency programmes
  • Auditing and training programmes

Why we’re different

We’ll provide a service that works for you and is tailored to your specific requirements. Working closely with CCGs and local authorities, we’ll start by gaining a full understanding of a client’s current issues and requirements. This information then allows us to formulate a service specification, bespoke to each partner organisation. Our approach is consultative and focuses on partnership; throughout the contract we’ll hold regular service review and analysis meetings to adapt our service as required.

Staffing quality that you can rely on

Our rigorous recruitment and screening processes ensure our assessment teams are built from the very best candidates, available within their specialist clinical areas. We require each of our CHC Nurse Assessors to have at least six months substantive, direct experience of CHC and FNC assessments for their clinical area within the last three years.

Due to the specialist backgrounds and skills of our nurse assessors, we’re able to deploy teams who can hit the ground running and work autonomously due to their comprehensive knowledge of the guidance and frameworks in place. This is further supported by the bespoke learning and development processes we have for both internal nurse assessors and our partner organisation’s in-house staff.

Invested in delivering you cost savings

We are currently involved in a number of cost-saving programmes centred on the eligibility and assessment process. We’re working with CCGs to provide solutions for issues effecting the CHC element of quality premium payments based on the CHC and FNC guidance. One of our most recent projects has offered a return on investment of 720%.
