Increase in Funded Nursing Care rates from April 2019

The Government has announced the Funded Nursing Care rate will be increased from £158.16 to £165.56 per week .

Whilst we welcome this increase, those paying for care may not necessarily feel any financial benefit until all homes with nursing are compelled to deduct this funding from their weekly rates.

The NHS England report for funded nursing care shows that Q3 2017/18 79,040 people were eligible compared to 77,741 in Q3 2018/19  which is also correlating with a decrease in NHS continuing healthcare funding.

If you have any questions regarding either funded nursing care or NHS continuing healthcare, please contact our clinical advisor, Judy Timson who has a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area on 01926 354704.
