Continuing Health Care (CHC) Assessment is for patients who may require ongoing care and support either at home or in a Residential or Nursing home. Assessments are carried out in 2 stages; the first is a checklist assessment which determines if a second more detailed CHC assessment is required. If a patient or their representative wants to discuss how to arrange the initial checklist assessment please ask them to ring
