NHS-funded nursing care (FNC) is paid by the NHS to cover any fees related to the nursing or medical care a person receives from a registered nurse. It is paid to residents of nursing homes and the current rate is £219.71 per week in England.
FNC is not means tested, so your income and savings have no bearing on whether you can get it or not.
In England and Wales, FNC is funded by the NHS through your nursing home’s local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and in Northern Ireland, your local Health and Social Care Trust (HSC) will make the nursing care contributions.
In Scotland, local authorities make personal and nursing care payments to the care home if the resident is funding their stay themselves and if they have been assessed as having personal or nursing care needs.
