Increase to NHS-funded nursing care rate

The NHS-funded nursing care rate, provided by the NHS to care homes to support nursing care needs of their residents, is to be increased.

Across the country, the funding is used to provide nursing care for tens of thousands of people who need it and are assessed as eligible.

The standard weekly rate per person will be increased by 2% from £183.92 to £187.60.

As part of the changes, the higher rate of NHS-funded nursing care will also increase by 2% from the current rate of £253.02 per week to £258.08 for the next financial year.

This covers those who were already on the higher rate in 2007 when the single band was introduced.

The new regulations have been laid before Parliament which are to be brought into force the new rates from April 1, 2021.
