Nurse care costs
Did the cost of nurse care ruin your savings?
If you, or a loved one, had a nurse care assessment carried out by your local health authority only to find that you must pay your own care home fees, then did you know that there is a very strong chance that the assessment was not carried out correctly?
Primary care trusts throughout the UK have carried out thousands of incorrect nurse care assessments on elderly citizens, meaning that thousands of people have ended up having to pay for their own care when they should be eligible for free care under the NHS.
If you suffer from dementia, Alzheimer's disease or any other severe physical or mental disability, then your nurse care assessment should have showed that you are eligible for free continuing care under the NHS.
If, however, your local health authority carried out an incorrect nurse care assessment then you may have been made to pay for care in a nursing home at your own expense. By law, those with serious health needs should receive full or part funding for continuing care under the NHS.
Many people have already taken their local health authority to task over these erroneous assessments and have received £1000s of nurse care home fees in compensation.
