NHS Continuing Care latest statistics

The most recent NHS Continuing Healthcare figures (to end of March 2019) show a slight increase in the total number of people being funded. However there is a continuing fall in the number of standard NHS CHC decisions. It appears that in the last 2 years there has been a 9% reduction in Standard NHS CHC numbers and a 5% increase in Fast-tracks (now amounting to 35% of the total).
