To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) whether patients who have had strokes qualify for continuing healthcare assessment; (292359)

(2) what criteria govern the award of continuing healthcare assessment to patients who have had strokes.

A revised national framework for continuing care was published in August 2009. This framework covers those patients who have had strokes as the eligibility criteria for continuing care are not disease specific. A copy of the framework has been placed in the Library.
