Nursing homes remain open but for how long?

Edwin Poots announced on 16th April that eighteen NHS care homes that were earmarked for closure are to remain open while residents want to stay in them.  The announcement has been warmly welcomed by the care homes and their residents.  However, questions remain about the long-term future of these homes as the Minister for Health has not reversed his policy of blocking new admissions.  Click here to read the commentary of Duane Farrell, the Director of Policy at Age NI.  For further information on the calls for clarity over the future admissions policy please click here.
