The Personal Health Commissioning Service at NHS Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is working extremely hard to source care for people who are eligible under NHS Continuing Healthcare.
We understand that people who are eligible for Continuing Healthcare have complex needs, and we are committed to making the best use of the resources available to us – sourcing safe and sustainable care packages to meet people’s needs.
Health and social care services continue to be stretched, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. There is a continuing national shortage of health and care workers, and Dorset, like the rest of the country, is affected by this.
This could mean that it takes us longer to identify and source care, and it might mean that the care that we are able to offer is limited by this. For example, due to these constraints, it might not be possible to find care in a particular setting or with a specific provider. Please be reassured that we are doing our very best to source care at this time.
We are very grateful to our hard-working teams who are doing their very best during these challenging times nationally.
Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding.
