In current times it is not surprising that there are perhaps disparities in funding models whether due to geographical area or source of funding.

Eligibility and accessibility of community care, whether health or social care, has become more and more complex, particularly as demand has increased.

At Anthony Collins Solicitors, we advise and assist clients who, either because of illness or injury acquired from an accident or medical negligence, need community care.  Examples of our work include:

  • Successfully challenging a decision to withdraw continuing healthcare funding forcing the individual to have to pay their own care fees.
  • In the case of a severely injured young man, who had to settle his compensation claim for a proportion of its full value because of liability issues, we successfully challenged his social care package securing him an additional annual payment of £6,000.
