Health needs assessment
Has a health needs assessment left you in financial woe and without NHS funded primary care?
Did you know that any one with severely debilitating conditions like Alzheimer's disease, senile dementia, or severe physical disability should be entitled to NHS funded residential home care regardless of their financial circumstances or health needs assessment?
Unfortunately the health needs assessment criteria for determining eligibility are rather subjective and fall under the remit of your Local Authority. A Local Authority trying to make ends meet on ever diminishing budgets is given the last word on whether or not you qualify for expensive residential home care.
One can almost forgive them for tending to err on the side of savings! But those savings are yours and regardless of the government's financial plight you are entitled to keep them, not them.
Primary care trusts all over the country have carried out thousands of incorrect health needs assessments on elderly citizens, meaning that thousands of people have ended up having to pay for their own care when they should be receiving it for free under the NHS.
