Duration: 1 Day (6 hours CPD)

Course Overview

Continuing Healthcare is a very complex area of work but one which all professionals working in health and social care need to understand.

The aim of this course is to provide an overview of the law underpinning Continuing Healthcare and the process end to end. The duties of the LHB will be explored along with the role of the LA, enabling professionals to correctly work within the legal framework and carry out their role effectively and to best practice standards.
