Funding Of Long-Term Nursing Care

EDM number 369 in 1998-99, proposed by Philip Hammond on 26/02/1999.

That this House supports Age Concern and the Royal College of Nursing in urging the Secretary of State for Health to issue advice to health authorities and local authorities on their respective responsibilities following the judgement in R v North and East Devon Health Authority ex parte Coughlan which asserted that both general and specialist nursing care remain the sole responsibility of health authorities; and further urges the issuing of advice to those individuals who are currently in hospital assessed as needing nursing home care, or who are currently paying for nursing in nursing homes and who may now believe as a result of the judgement that nursing in nursing homes is free.

This motion has been signed by a total of 36 MPs.
