Fast Track Form for NHS Continuing Healthcare – Word document

Please read carefully. A simplified form for use under Covid-19. Downloads onto your computer. Send by email with the subject heading "Interim COVID-19 funding". Ideally with an attached Palliative Care Referral Form for a new application (Tip - search for SPA, I cannot add hyperlinks here) For a person returning or staying at home send to: necmid.pcccreferrals@nhs.net For care homes or for a request to increase funding send to: Lccg.ft@nhs.net

This link downloads the single form replaces the previous 4 separate forms.

The PCCC (Palliative Care Coordination Centre) remains the single point of access for all referrals, they can be contacted on 0300 020 0694. The form should not stop clinician to clinician discussions. There is a 24hr palliative care advice line: 0300 303 1754
