NHS Continuing Care and NHS Funded Nursing Care Collection


BAAS Assessed Ref: R00201

Frequency: Quarterly


Background to the collection

The NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) Funded Nursing Care (FNC) return collects information on the numbers of people receiving, and eligible for, NHS Continuing Health Care and NHS Funded Nursing Care. The Health and Social Care Information Centre are carrying out this quarterly collection on behalf of NHS England.

A national framework was introduced in October 2007 which introduced for the first time a single set of eligibility criteria. It is vital that NHS England continue to be able to assess the impact of this new framework and be able to monitor whether local variation has reduced.
