1. I require copies of all documentation relating to the processes, procedures, policies or protocols etc pertaining to CHC determination and appeal processes, that should have been drawn up as indicated in the National Framework for CHC. These are required in full detail and not simply as flowcharts. Included in this request, I also require the supposed agreement between CCG and Calderdale ASHC dealing with the handling of the CHC Checklist.
In response to your request we provide the following documents:
Continuing Health Care Commissioning Principles Policy
Operational Policy for NHS Funded Continuing Healthcare and NHS Funded Nursing Care
With regard to the supplied operational policy, we have also provided a number of PDF files which are referenced as embedded documents within the appendices to the policy.
