Hi--I understand all you said above but I'm not quite certain about the exact question you have?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

is it a health need my mothers,and not a primary one,with the details i have given to you,so i can stay in my mums flat,which is a asset for care-home fees and be sold,if the nhs,dont pay for cotinuing health care

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK Carl. This is definitely a health need in your mother's case. With her physical conditions she can defintely be classified as medically disabled and entitled to continuing health care paid for by the NHS. So you can stay in her flat and it doesn't have to be sold
