Retrospective Applications

Sometimes patients feel that they would have been eligible for Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding in the past but did not receive an assessment. For the period 01/04/2004-31/03/2012, the deadlines for submitting a retrospective application have passed.

For the period 01/04/2012 to the present time, patients can write to NHS Wakefield CCG CHC Team, advising on the period of possible eligibility and providing an account of the reasons for eligibility.

The team will consider the application on the basis of the guidance available at the time of application.

Anyone applying on behalf of someone else will need to have ‘Lasting Power of Attorney’ registered with the Court of Protection and provide the CHC team with the original document - this will be photocopied and returned to you.
