11.5pc uplift in Funded Nursing Care announced

Care England has welcomed the announced 2022-23 Funded Nursing Care uplift (FNC) of 11.5 per cent from its current £187.60 to £209.19 per week (£287.78 for those on the historic high band payment) backdated to April 2022. 

In consideration of the work and time provided by nurses in care homes during the pandemic, for the 2021-22 financial year, CCGs will be instructed to provide a retrospective payment of £21.93 (£30.17 for those on the high band) per resident per week.
 
Professor Martin Green OBE, Chief Executive of Care England, says: “We commend the Department of Health and Social Care for recognising the cost increases faced by providers and the impact of the pandemic on our valued nurses. As we move forward, we must seek longer-term solutions to the national nursing shortage and the difficulties the sector has recruiting nurses and slowing the rates of attrition.”
