NHS Funded Nursing Care
NHS Funded Nursing Care is paid by the NHS directly to nursing homes to fund the care provided by their Registered Nurses. This includes planning, supervising and monitoring nursing and healthcare tasks, as well as direct nursing care.
Residents of Cornford House are eligible for this funding on the basis that they “live in a care home registered to provide nursing care” (click here for details), subject to them having been assessed as needing care from registered nurses.
Residents usually receive confirmation of NHS Funded Nursing Care by the following letter:
This letter confirms that NHS Funded Nursing Care should be reflected in the care home fee actually charged to the resident. Our advertised fees therefore already exclude NHS Funded Nursing Care and so the amount which a resident pays to the home is unaffected by whether the NHS grants it in his/her particular case.
