As from April 2002 the Regulation of Care (Scotland) Act 2001 removed the statutory distinction between residential care homes and nursing homes. Consequently, local authority expenditure on residential care homes and on nursing homes was combined from financial year 2002-03 onwards and reclassified as Older People - Care Homes (Non Respite). The following table shows expenditure in each of the last five years. The figures for 2001-02 are the combined figures under the two previous headings. Those from 2002-03 onwards are the figures under the single new heading.
