FNC Increase

NHS payments to care homes to fund nursing will rise by 5% for 2023-24, the Department of Health and Social Care has confirmed.

Standard funded nursing care (FNC) weekly payments have risen from £209.19 to £219.71 from 1 April, with the very few residents on the legacy higher rate seeing an increase in their payments from £287.78 to £302.25 per week.

The FNC funds either the provision of care, or the planning, supervision or delegation of such care, by registered nurses in care homes.

The DHSC said the rise follows an 11.5% hike in the payments last year.
