Government to review NHS funding of nursing in care homes

The Department of Health is to review the rate paid by the NHS to nursing homes for nursing services.

Registered nursing care for residents, who are assessed to be eligible, in nursing homes is funded by the NHS. The rate payable for this financial year is currently £112.00 a week per resident.

This review will consider whether the rate paid is reflective of the costs of providing this important service and supports high quality out-of-hospital care.

The department intends to complete the review in this financial year.
