NHS Greenwich Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and its partner Enabled City, an independent company, have today released a motion graphics film which explains how the National Framework for NHS continuing healthcare (CHC) works in practice. The film aims to help adults who have complicated, intense or unpredictable healthcare needs understand better how the NHS decides if someone’s day-to-day care and support should be funded entirely by the NHS.
Having a good understanding of how the national policy operates in practice is important, as if people are eligible for NHS continuing healthcare, they do not pay anything towards the costs of their care. This can make an enormous difference to people in their day-to-day lives.
The film is the result of joint working between NHS Greenwich CCG and Enabled City. The two organisations found that although the National Framework for NHS continuing healthcare is very clear and helpful, it is also very long and complicated, and many people find it difficult to understand. The two organisations decided to jointly develop a film that would help explain the National Framework in a simple, informative and entertaining way.
The film and the script for the film can be found on the NHS Greenwich CCG website at www.greenwichccg.nhs.uk/chc
The film is also available on the Enabled City website at www.enabledcity.com/chc
