Do you need help with your case from an NHS Continuing Healthcare solicitor?
You’ll find heaps of useful information on our website to help you with NHS Continuing Healthcare.
At the same time, doing battle with a CCG over NHS Continuing Healthcare funding can be frustrating and exhausting – not to mention daunting at times. It’s understandable that you might need help from an NHS Continuing Healthcare solicitor – someone on your side to fight the battle for you.
Having a specialist to help you with your individual case can be invaluable – and can save you a huge amount of time and stress.
Be careful, though…
We’ve heard from families who’ve been charged an awful lot of money for an opinion on eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare, and yet it’s obvious from just a few minutes on the phone with the family that they don’t actually have a good case.
It’s not always easy to recommend someone in this field, and there are some companies out there who are quick to take your money without being realistic about your chances of securing funding.
Read the Continuing Healthcare eligibility criteria before you part with any money
We’ve built up a good relationship with Farley Dwek Solicitors, and we really like their approach. They’re a specialist family firm, they understand the law inside out. They help families throughout England and Wales.
What’s more, you can speak to them on the phone initially free of charge, so that they can give you a view on your potential NHS Continuing Healthcare eligibility and prospects of success on appeal – without you having to spend any money at that point.
If it seems unlikely that you’ll be eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare, they’ll tell you straight away. In addition, even if they don’t think they can help you with Continuing Healthcare, they can give you some general advice about care funding.
Andrew Farley, director at Farley Dwek, adds,
“This initial free conversation is of course just a first opinion, based on a short conversation we have with you. If it does look like there may be a chance of success for you with NHS Continuing Healthcare, we can outline the various ways we may be able to help further. Never pay anyone a lot of money without having at least discussed your case with them briefly first. It’s also a good idea to read through the Continuing Healthcare eligibility criteria yourself before you part with any money.”
As NHS Continuing Healthcare solicitors, Farley Dwek have a team of specialist nurses, who have worked on the ‘other side’ with CCGs and know what needs to be done to present a strong case. They can attend NHS Continuing Healthcare assessments with you, to support you – on your side – each step of the way.
So whether you’re at the start of the process for a relative, or you’re stuck in the appeals system or you’re making a retrospective care fees claim, Farley Dwek can help you.
And because they’re specialists, with many years of hands-on practical experience acting for families in this way – and in dealing with funding assessors and decision makers – they understand what’s needed during assessment meetings, to challenge mistakes and misinformation.
Depending on the circumstances of your case and the likelihood of success, they may also be able to offer you a no win no fee agreement. This is where they take all the financial risk to fight your case, and you pay them an agreed amount afterwards – but only if you’re successful.
In the first instance though, talk to them about your case – free of charge – to see if they can help you.
