NHS nursing care rates to rise by 2 per cent

DHSC has increased NHS nursing care rates by 2 per cent from April 1 – a move criticised by care representatives as contemptuous.

From April 1, the standard weekly rate per person for 2021-22 will increase by £3.68 to £187.60 and the higher rate by £5.06 to £258.08 per week for the next financial year.  

Commenting on the regulations now laid before Parliament,  Care England chief executive Professor Martin Green said:
 
“This decision shows contempt for a sector that has been on the front line during this pandemic, and may be the final blow that sees some services close.  

The rate mirrors that of last year, but we are of course in a very different place which hasn’t been understood, acknowledged or recompensed. We would ask that the DHSC is fully transparent in evidencing how it came to a 2 per cent increase.”
