Nottinghamshire County Council – Banded Fee Rates 2016/17

Older people’s care home fee rates are based on a five band quality rating scale. Our staff currently visit each care home every year and assess a range of factors to determine how outcomes for residents are being met. This process is used to determine a quality rating. Band 5 is the highest rating that can be achieved, but it should be noted that, due to the Council regularly reviewing the care homes, the ratings can change.

Please note – the nursing rates above do not include the £112.00 nursing care contribution.

The above fees are those that we will pay as a contribution to the care home if we are funding your care. However, please note that some care homes may charge more and the difference will need to be paid via a top-up or third party payment.
