August 2016 Aftercare Services Who Pays

NHS England has issued new guidance on responsibility for S117 aftercare services.

From 1 April 2016 where a detained person was registered with a GP in the area of one clinical commissioning group (CCG) but is discharged into the area of another CCG, the original CCG will retain funding responsibility for 117 aftercare. This in fact takes us back to the same position prior to April 2013. However, the new guidance is not retrospective.
