NHS Continuing Healthcare in Scotland – Draft Guidance

untitled Alliance-logo-(L)-web

News and Event! Added 
For too long we have failed to ask what is continuing care for?
Speaking personally for me continuing care could only be a last resort for medical intervention that couldn't be provided elsewhere and was required on a long term chronic basis.

It has long perturbed me that in the past we have not thought carefully enough about we mean by continuing care and too often people have ended up there for the wrong reasons. I welcome new guidance. 
This is an opportunity to have your say about whether that guidance is right and about what continuing care means to you. Come along, join us and tell us your view.
