Review of the NHS-Funded Nursing Care (NHS FNC) Rate in England

Leave a comment

The Department of Health is looking for a review of the NHS-Funded Nursing Care (NHS FNC) rate in England.

The aim of this review is to determine the reasonable costs of providing the nursing element of care in a registered nursing home. An appropriate and explicit methodology should be proposed such that there is a clear basis for transparently updating it in future. The reasonable costs should allow care homes to provide sufficient numbers of suitably qualified, competent, skilled and experienced persons to provide NHS FNC, as required by Part 6 of the National Health Service Commissioning Board and Clinical Commissioning Boards (Responsibilities and Standing Rules) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

The work will need to be between 9 November 2015 and 16 February 2016.

Deadline for proposals: 29 October
