Complex Health Needs for 5 to 11 years

If your child has complex health needs, such as oxygen dependency or tube feeding, or has a life-limiting or serious mental health condition, you may be able to get help with ‘continuing’ care over an extended period of time, including palliative 'end-of-life' care.

Personal Health Budgets

Personal health budgets are being introduced by the NHS to help people manage their care in a way that suits them. They have been piloted in a number of places across England and since October 2014, adults receiving NHS Continuing Healthcare and children in receipt of continuing care have had a right to have a personal health budget.
