Following publication of a report on long term care in February 2003 by the NHS Ombudsman, the Department of Health requested all Strategic Health Authorities to establish an integrated set of eligibility criteria for NHS continuing health care to operate across each territory, and to undertake a process of retrospective review of cases where people may have been denied continuing care. The Department of Health commissioned from Melanie Henwood an independent review of local progress with these tasks.
