The Government’s cost of living support package delivers £15 billion worth of support measures to assist the most vulnerable with rising energy bills, including charges incurred by medical equipment and devices as part of home care.

Certain specialised NHS England services, such as home Haemodialysis, do include financial support to offset energy costs sustained from running medical equipment at home.

The Government will continue to closely monitor the situation and stands ready to take further steps if needed.
