To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford on 28 January (HL489), how many places in care or nursing homes the NHS funded in the last financial year for which figures are available; what was the total expenditure incurred; and how many homes were involved.

The Adult Social Care Activity and Finance Report for 2018/19 shows that, in that year, from the potential clients who applied for adult social care packages, 14,030 received a package that was 100% funded by the National Health Service. There are likely to be other packages that are funded in part by the NHS, but this information is not held centrally.

Information on the overall expenditure of the NHS on care home placements and the homes concerned is not held centrally.
