BAAS Assessed Ref: R00201

Frequency: Quarterly

Background to the collection

The NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funded Nursing Care (FNC) return collects information on the numbers of people receiving, and eligible for, NHS Continuing Health Care and NHS Funded Nursing Care. NHS Digital are carrying out this quarterly collection on behalf of NHS England.

A national framework was introduced in October 2007 which introduced for the first time a single set of eligibility criteria. It is vital that NHS England continue to be able to assess the impact of this new framework and be able to monitor whether local variation has reduced.
