Your child or young person’s eligibility for continuing care depends on their assessed needs, and not on any particular diagnosis, condition or prognosis. It also depends on whether there is another NHS service available that can meet your child or young person’s needs.
If your child or young person’s needs change then their eligibility for continuing care will require review. The introduction of a local service which can meet some or all of their needs may also result in changes to their continuing care package. You as the parent or person with parental responsibility will be fully involved in the assessment process and kept informed and have your views about your child or young person’s needs and support taken into account.
