NHS continuing healthcare challenge - crowdfunding campaign launched

A crowdfunding campaign has been launched today to fund a proposed judicial review challenge, relating to the failure of the NHS to fund the long-term healthcare costs of tens of thousands of eligible patients.

Rebekah Carrier of Hopkin Murray Beskine, who is instructed to act in the claim, said

“It is often a huge and time consuming challenge for ill and vulnerable people to get the healthcare funding to which they are legally entitled. Many do not succeed, even when they should be eligible for NHS services which are “free at the point of delivery".

"There appears to be a systemic failure on the part of the Secretary of State and NHS England to ensure that health bodies make lawful decisions.

“This systemic failure is unlawful and we will be asking the Courts to take action to make sure that the law is followed".
