We are one of England’s largest providers of operational support for NHS continuing healthcare, working with over 130 hospitals across the UK.
We have been entrusted with supporting Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust and Swansea Bay University Health Board carrying out section 117 assessment reviews.
Our experienced clinicians review for; safety and welfare of the individual, continued relevance of the care package provided to meet assessed need, commissioning and contracting arrangements, the proportionate contribution of stakeholders, the correct funding stream, ongoing eligibility to NHS funded care, engagement with Care Coordinators, engagement with families and / or representatives. These are often supplemented with an ‘out of area’ placement review to ensure that the individual has the right level of support and that, wherever possible, it is being delivered close to home. CHS Healthcare, part of Acacium Group is the largest provider of these, independent, clinically focused, services to both NHS commissioners and to local authorities.
