Professional services and training

The experienced team at Beacon have been sought out by various public, private and third sector organisations to provide expert advice and training on a range NHS Continuing Healthcare related matters over the last decade, cementing our position as a leading independent authority on the subject.

For over 13 years our caseworkers have been commissioned by Strategic Health Authorities, Primary Care Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities to provide expert independent advice, casework and advocacy to individuals at any stage of the continuing healthcare assessment or appeal process.

We were part of the team writing the new national NHS continuing healthcare E-Learning programme. Working with NHS England we were commissioned to co-write the Dispute Resolution module and to quality check other modules. In 2014 we joined the NHS England Continuing Healthcare Stakeholder Group, and in 2015 we were commissioned by NHS England to set up and pilot England’s first independent NHS continuing healthcare information and advice service.

Our team has been invited to provide training to, and participate in policy development discussions with NHS trusts, Local Authorities, hospital trusts and charities from all over the UK. Most recently, we have been commissioned to provide in-depth training to the following organisations:

  • SEAP Advocacy
  • Bassetlaw Commissioning Organisation
  • Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford Clinical Commissioning Group
  • High Weald Lewes Havens Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust
  • East Sussex County Council

Our Managing Director has also been a guest speaker at the Westminster Briefing on the future of continuing healthcare and was invited by NHS England to sit on the interview panel for Independent Review Panel Chair appointments in 2014.

The team at Beacon are dedicated to using the experience we have gained to make the continuing healthcare system easier for everyone to understand and navigate. We can provide expert advice, training and presentations to any organisation with an interest in NHS continuing healthcare.
