P resident in nursing care home having moved to the home from an ordinary care home in another local authority due to behavioural issues.
Local NHS CCG S assesses P and provisionally decides that she should qualify for fully funded nursing care. 6 weeks later CCG S refers the matter to CCG M having decided that as P was registered with a GP in CCG M’s area previously when she had the same care needs then CCG M should be responsible for the funding.
CCG M (unsurprisingly) have taken the opposite view - that CCG S are responsible as P was registered with GP in their area at the date of the assessment.
I have had a look at NHS England’s 'Who Pays?" guidance but it isn’t clear to me on which CCG responsibility falls. Can anyone provide clarification?
