Thank You NHS!

This isn't another Coronavirus update, but welcome news of the new rates of Funded Nursing Care (FNC) for residents of Nursing Homes.

FNC was set at £165.56 a week in April 2018 and remained at that level until now. However, the NHS has announced that an 8% rise to £180.31 applies from April 2019 and this will be backdated.

The FNC rate from April 2020 rises by 2% to £183.92 a week.

This will be welcome help for all those that are meeting increasing fees in nursing homes.

Are you receiving the State benefits to which you are entitled? Details of those that apply to care home residents can be found here.

Alternatively, please contact us and we will be pleased to talk through your situation.
