BaNES CCG CHC Choice and Equity Policy (Nov 2019)

This policy describes the way in which the Virgin Care Continuing Healthcare Team (CHC) on behalf of Bath and North East Somerset CCG will source care for people who have been assessed as eligible for fully funded NHS Continuing Healthcare or for interim health funding on discharge from hospital.
The policy describes the way in which care is commissioned in a manner which reflects the choice and preferences of individuals but balances the need for Bath and North East Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to commission care that is safe and effective and makes the best use of available resources.
