Funded Nursing Care rate to increase!

From the 1st April 2024 the standard Funded Nursing Care rate will increase by 7.4%!

This means that there will be an increase in funding from the current £219.71 to £235.88 a week. 

Funded Nursing Care (FNC) is paid by the NHS for the nursing element of nursing home fees. The contribution is paid directly to the care home and enables care home residents with specific healthcare needs to benefit from direct nursing care and services. 

A person is entitled to this contribution whether they are self-funding their care or not. Remember: eligibility for Funded Nursing Care (FNC) should only be agreed once a person has been through the NHS Continuing Healthcare process. 

FNC is paid to care homes in England by Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) as under section 22 of the Care Act 2014, registered nursing costs cannot be met by a local authority.

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.
