NHS continuing healthcare

Some young people need extra help because they struggle with:

  • breathing
  • eating and drinking
  • taking medicine
  • moving about
  • memory and thinking.

You can ask your social worker, GP, nurse for a referral to the NHS continuing healthcare if you need extra help. Together with your family or support team, they'll figure out how to help you against their checklist.

A Personal Health Budget allows some young people to get extra support through social services.
