This is available for individuals who have a need for nursing care, but who do not meet the criteria for the more comprehensive Continuing Health Care.
It is intended to help pay for “services provide by a registered nurse involving the provision of care, the planning, supervision or delegation of the provision of care, other than services which do not need to be provided by a registered nurse.”
NHS Funded Nursing Care is paid at a single flat rate of £209.19 per week in England and applicants need to be resident in a registered nursing home. The payment is non means tested and is paid directly by the NHS to the nursing home.
The rate of FNC varies across the UK.
