This chapter was added to the APPP in July 2019. It was previously in the NHS Continuing Healthcare Reviews chapter.

Eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare is not permanent. Due to changing needs, a person’s eligibility may vary. This may mean that following a review, a person who is receiving fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare becomes eligible for local authority service provision and funding.

Where a person is an ordinary resident (see Establishing Ordinary Residence chapter) in Lincolnshire at the time they are awarded fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare and placed in an out-of-county care home, they remain the responsibility of Lincolnshire Adult Care if, following a review, they are no longer eligible for fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare. More information can be found in Chapter 19 and Annex H of the Care and Support Statutory Guidance.
