NHS England has now published the refreshed NHS Continuing Healthcare Redress Guidance for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), to be used when considering NHS Continuing Healthcare redress payments for individuals.
The document has been updated to reflect the ‘Principles for Remedy’ from the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman for all public bodies. The guidance retains the principle of returning the individual to the financial position they would have been in had they been assessed as eligible and the need for redress identified.
CCGs will continue to consider the specific circumstances of individual cases, as they do now, to ensure that all individuals are returned to the financial position they should have been in, if redress is considered appropriate.
