Overview

Introduction

The NHS Continuing Healthcare Data Set is transmitted at aggregate level to the NHS Digital   Strategic Data Collection Service  (SDCS) with publication outputs available on the NHS England website at: NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care

The Department of Health and Social Care introduced the National framework for NHS continuing healthcare and NHS-funded nursing care  in 2007 to establish a consistent and standardised guide to implementing the delivery of NHS Continuing Healthcare  (NHS CHC). This was last revised in March 2018 and replaces the previous 2012 version. The National Framework sets out NHS Continuing Healthcare and assessment processes. The latest version places a strong focus on moving assessments outside of an acute setting.

NHS Continuing Healthcare  is a package of ongoing care that is 100% funded solely by the NHS where the PERSON has been found to have a 'primary health need' as set out in the  National framework for NHS continuing healthcare and NHS funded nursing care. Such care is provided to a PERSON aged 18 or over, to meet needs that have arisen as a result of disability, accident or illness.

In order to monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the Framework, a mandatory collection requires the submission of quarterly figures on NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care activity.
