What is Health Care

What is Health Care?

The law makes a distinction between health care and social care.

Health Care is medical care.

Medical care is provided by the National Health Service (NHS).  You would not normally be expected to pay any self contribution for your health care.  This includes:

  • District nursing
  • Chiropody
  • Physiotherapy
  • Incontinence materials

In simple terms for health care, they will pay for your medicine and health issues but not necessarily for your bed.

If you have a medical need, generally irrespective of where that might by for example; at home, in hospital or in a care home, this should be funded by the National Health Service.
