Does the NHS pay care home fees? If certain conditions are met then patients are entitled to NHS funding of their care home fees. However, not all patients are aware of this and many miss out. Patients should be assessed using a two stage process, but decisions are often wrong and can be appealed. Retrospective claims for care home fee refunds can also be made after the patient has passed away. To find out where you stand and for details of no win, no fee funding, contact our free legal helpline on 0808 139 1606 or send us an email.
