Wace Morgan Solicitors, based in Belmont, Shrewsbury, has a large team of lawyers specialising in elderly care, particularly working with patients overcharged by the NHS.
Nicola Pearce of Wace Morgan, said that many elderly people had been incorrectly assessed and had been asked to pay towards care which should have been free.
She explained: “We have arranged for retrospective reviews and obtained almost £2 million pounds for patients who had wrongfully paid the full costs or a contribution towards their care fees when the NHS should have been responsible.
“However, health authorities are now closing the door for such retrospective reviews, with many people only having until 30th September this year to lodge their request so time is running out.
“There are many patients in Shropshire who may not be aware that they have been wrongfully charged and we would urge them to contact us or their own solicitor as soon as possible to establish whether or not they have a claim.
“The action could result in them re-claiming many thousands of pounds,” she stressed.
