Numbers fall ‘rapidly’ but new #carehomes offering more places

The last five years have seen a reduction in the number of
residential and nursing homes operating in England: 1,400 fewer homes.
The long-term trend of increasing numbers of nursing home beds and
decreasing numbers of residential home beds has come to a halt.

This paper captures the keys points of a presentation given by IPC
Assistant Director Fiona Richardson at the Health plus Care conference
in June 2017. It analyses changes in the care home market in England
before and after the Care Act (2014) and summarises experience from
IPC’s work on market shaping.
