Thousands of residents in Nursing/Care homes throughout the United Kingdom are being unlawfully made to pay Nursing/Care home fees, which should be paid for by the NHS.
If you or your family member has a medical condition or requirement which should be met by the NHS, but is being provided for by the Nursing Home where you live or you used to live – then you may be entitled to claim back some or all Nursing Home Fees, which you or your relative has paid. Diabetes, Epilepsy, Arthritis, Cancer, Heart Disease and Alzheimer’s are all good examples of conditions which can form the basis of an appeal for repayment.
A ruling by the Court of Appeal and Health Services Ombudsman states that many of the criteria which were used for assessing whether care home fees should be paid by the NHS did not meet legal requirements. The announcement was made without much public fanfare and without directly contacting the families who may be eligible for a refund, so thousands of people could miss out on reclaiming money to which they are entitled.
EAD Solicitors can help you reclaim Nursing/Care home costs on a No Win No Fee basis, where you will not pay us anything if we don’t recover the Nursing Fees you have paid. In 2011, NHS Primary Care Trusts paid back more than £10 Million in Nursing Home fees which has been wrongly charged to residents in Care Homes all over England, Scotland and Wales.
For more information on reclaiming nursing home fees, call us on 0151 735 1000 and speak to one of our Liverpool solicitors today.
Extremely happy with the outcome of my Personal Injury Claim and can only thank Paul McCarthy and his team at EAD Solicitors and also Tim Trotman my barrister arranged by EAD, for all their work and efforts on my behalf. As such I would highly recommend EAD to anyone in need of their service. Once again thanks to all involved.
