NHS-funded nursing care rate for 2016/17

The NHS contribution towards the costs of a place in a care home with nursing is being increased by 40%.

The increase follows an independent review of the rate paid by the NHS to nursing homes (known as NHS-funded nursing care). The review, carried out by Mazars LLP, recommends that the NHS-funded nursing care rate should increase by 40% to £156.25.

The government accepts the recommendation, which means that clinical commissioning groups will now pay a national rate of £156.25. The increase will be backdated to 1 April 2016 for individuals who were in receipt of NHS-funded nursing care from that time.
