Recovering care fees

We are highly experienced in the recovery of care fees. We operate nationwide and our lawyers have an excellent track record in challenging NHS funding decisions. We have successfully recovered substantial sums for our clients. Claims are often funded on a No Win – No Fee basis, so there is usually no financial risk involved.

How we can help you

If you think you or a family member are paying for care which should be funded by the NHS, then the first step is to contact one of our experts to discuss a potential claim.

We can assist people who are in a care home and wrongly paying fees that the NHS should be funding.

Alternatively, if you are receiving care in your own home and are worried about the costs, we can establish if you are entitled to receive financial help.

And if you have lost a loved one who was paying for care then we can carry out a retrospective assessment to find out if you are owed a refund.

Specialist care lawyers

We appreciate what an upsetting and daunting time it can be for those moving into a care home and for their families. We handle care claims with compassion and sensitivity and will explain every step of the process to you.

Our lawyers are specialists in care law and are familiar with the arguments the NHS raises when refusing care funding.

Our lawyers will deal with your claim themselves from start to finish and will not pass your claim on to a third party, as is so often the case with many companies who advertise this service.

Funding your claim

We have a number of flexible funding options, including our popular No Win – No Fee scheme, so fear of legal costs should never deter anyone seeking the financial support they are entitled to receive from the NHS.

Reviewing Healthcare Assessments

Under the law you are entitled to reclaim care home fees which have been wrongly paid as a result of an incorrect assessment or lack of an assessment by the NHS, if the main reason for care is due to your health needs. We can arrange for a healthcare assessment to be carried out and oversee reviews of completed assessments.

Free case reviews by our experts

We will carry out a free initial assessment to establish if there are grounds for claiming a refund of care home fees paid by you or your relative.

Retrospective reviews

If your loved one has passed away and prior to their death they were receiving care in a care home, we may still be able to assist. We can assess the funding and where appropriate request a retrospective review of your loved one’s health needs.

Dementia Friendly

Our experts have been specially trained as Dementia friends, which is an initiative by the Alzheimer’s Society. This means we understand what it is like to live with Dementia and can provide you with tailored, practical advice.
