James Urquhart-Burton, partner at Ridley & Hall Solicitors and an expert in care funding, lays out the potential grounds for objecting to a decision and the key steps to mounting a successful appeal.
Also, if your appeal is not successful, you will have a further and final right of appeal to NHS England, which is called 'requesting an independent review panel'.

Has the CCG provided full contact details for NHS England so you know where your independent review panel request needs to go?
