Specialising in NHS Continuing Healthcare Funding

Did you know there is NHS funding available to pay for care?

If you have a “primary health need” then all the care you need outside hospital should be fully funded by the NHS. This is NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC). It can be provided in a care home or in your own home. It is not means-tested and is free to those who need it. At Just Caring Legal, we are dedicated purely to advising and advocating for those seeking to access this vital funding. 

“We were lucky to find such a committed advocate to represent Mum. I highly recommend this service; Roz is clearly passionate about defending vulnerable people and extremely knowledgeable.”

What Our Clients Say

What our clients say about Just Caring Legal

Just Caring [Legal] provided some much needed and much appreciated professional help in helping us interact with the discharge team for my son who was being held under Section 3 of the Mental Health Act. She took away a lot of the stress of the situation, handling communication for us, leading to the most beneficial outcome for his care.

Help interacting with my son’s discharge team
Neil, April 2024

My family and I had been left completely without answers for over a year regarding our mother’s case. I engaged the services [of] Rosalind. She was an absolute send!! Her professionalism, persistence, advice and support was nothing short of amazing. My family and I will always be eternally grateful to her securing a more than satisfactory outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend Rosalind, very highly to anyone.

Application for NHS CHC
Reg, January 2023

I cannot over-emphasise the excellent advice and support given by Rosalind during this time. In particular she worked prodigiously in preparing the final submissions for the IRP hearing. The ethos of caring with professionalism suggested by the name of the firm has been fully borne out in my experience.

Malcolm, November 2022

Rosalind carried out an amazing service for my family in presenting a case on two occasions that resulted in claiming back care fees from the CHC for care that my mother should have received from them during her long battle with dementia. Rosalind listened to the facts we presented and took on our case. She supported me during periods of stress in trying to proceed with the claim. Without her support, knowledge, dedication and determination we would not have been sucessful. She never gave up, especially on the second claim, where it was being denied at every stage. We were so grateful to see justice done and will always appreciate her efforts on our behalf.

Assistance with claiming back care fees
Joyce, October 2022

Rosalind left no stone unturned and was passionate about getting the right outcome. Very impressed and would highly recommend anyone talking to her who is unsure of whether to fight for justice. Through her professional input she was able to overturn the CHC decision of ineligibility and obtain the correct care level for the future. Such a weight off all our minds.

We were lucky to find such a committed advocate to represent Mum. I highly recommend this service; Ros is clearly passionate about defending vulnerable people and extremely knowledgeable. Without her, Mum wouldn’t have got fair treatment.
