Funded Nursing Care
Funded Nursing Care (FNC) is a weekly payment made by the NHS to cover nursing care provided by a Registered Nurse. FNC is only provided if you need nursing care within a care home setting.
The nursing care contribution is paid directly to the care home by the NHS. If you pay your own care fees, this amount should be deducted from your bill. If you are funded by the local authority, this amount will be deducted from the fees paid to the care home.
Your nursing home will receive £165.56 per week, which is the figure set by the Department of Health for 2019/20 and it is reviewed each year.
