The Government has no current plans to transfer responsibility for the funding provision of nursing home care to the National Health Service.

The NHS already provides NHS-funded nursing care. This is funding for care homes which supports the provision of nursing care by registered nurses to individuals who are assessed as eligible for funded nursing care.
