CHC 6 month appeal timescale has been reinstated

When the updated National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care came into effect on 1st October 2018, the previous 6 month timescale for lodging the first stage of an appeal (local resolution) had disappeared. The Department confirmed last week that the 2012 guidance will shortly be updated and re-published, and will once more state the six month appeal deadline. This latest update comes just a few months after the worrying news that CCGs were being allowed to set their own appeal timescales.
