The Welsh Government has announced that the final deadline for retrospectively re-claiming wrongly paid care home fees in Wales for the period 1st April 2003 to the 31st July 2013 will be the 31st July 2014.

NHS Continuing Healthcare is available to anyone who is in a care home because of physical or mental health needs. This means that anyone receiving care from the 1st April 2003 in Wales may be eligible for reimbursement of care home fees if the primary reason for being in care was caused by ill health.

If you know anyone who may be wrongly paying care home fees in Wales or may previously have been wrongly paying care home fees in Wales then time is running out to make a claim.

As a member of Legal Network Wales we can assist you in making a claim by referring you to specialists in this field.

As any new claim needs to be registered before the deadline of the 31st July 2014, in order to meet the deadline any such referrals must be made by the 11th July 2014.

If you require any further information in relation to this matter or wish to consider such a referral please do not hesitate to contact our Mr Hefin Rees.
