Our core service is based on our excellent team of CHC Nurse Advisers. Along with our Client Service Manager they will support you and answer your questions whenever needed, alongside they will produce the medical reports required for a CHC assessment as well as communicating with the NHS for you.
In addition, we offer access to an experienced legal team at Ormrods Solicitors lead by Sharif Ela who has extensive CHC and Court of Protection expertise. Any financial issues are picked up by Richard Blackburn of Ormrods Financial Planning who holds the FCA permissions to give advice on care fees funding.
Should we need a legal or financial opinion for you, it is just a walk down the hall away saving your time and your money.
The Ormrods CHC
We provide a 4-stage support process to take you and your family through this testing time
1. Free Consultation
Contact us on 01253-850777 or email@example.com and one of our trained CHC nurses will take you through the CHC process and help you decide whether to proceed with us
2. Nurse Assessment
One of our CHC nurse advisers will meet you, complete a full CHC report and then discuss the findings.
3. NHS Assessment Request
We will formally request the start of the NHS funding process and coordinate to ensure all evidence is available and you can attend the meetings
4. The CHC assessments
This 2-stage process can be difficult to families to navigate so we will both represent and support you throughout both meetings.
Fast Track Assessment
As part of our Nurse Assessment at Stage 2 we will consider Fast Track where appropriate. If it is decided that an application can be made under Fast Track, we will make the request on your behalf.
Should you not agree with a panel decision the appeals process exists to help you reach a satisfactory conclusion. Our team will provide an initial assessment of the validity of your grounds for appeal and can initiate and progress your appeal through to a final application to the Independent Review panel.
Sadly, many people spend many months and years in residential care/nursing home without being correctly assessed for eligibility for NHS Continuing Care funding. At Ormrods CHC we can offer a retrospective review for both current residents and those who have passed away.
Our team will build an historic health assessment and then set in place the mechanism to request that the NHS conduct a full retrospective review of eligibility.
A successful application can result in repayment of many months and years of fees.
Our services are flexible and can be used in way that best suits you and your family- we will build bespoke approach for you. We aim to get to know you as we realise that families are not just statistics but real people who need support and caring.
But one thing we tell all clients is that the sooner you obtain professional guidance the better the chance of obtaining funding.
