Retrospective Reviews

The NHS has a duty to pay the fees for people in care if their health needs meet the NHS Continuing Healthcare Criteria. If you or a relative were forced to sell their property or use savings and/or pension to pay for their care fees, they or their estate may be entitled to a refund for the overpaid fees. We can review your case and proceed with a claim on your behalf to recieve a refund from the NHS.
