NHS Continuing Care and NHS Funded Nursing Care Collection
BAAS Assessed Ref: R00201
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.
From Quarter 3 2016-17 onwards, NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) data will no longer be collected by NHS Digital. Instead, NHS Digital will publish the NHS CHC data collected by NHS England.
