Description:
We have been asked to advise on a number of issues concerning the provision of nursing home care by health boards prior to their dissolution in 2004. Specifically, we have been asked to advise on the following issues: (i) whether health boards had a duty to provide access to public nursing homes to persons within their functional areas and whether such persons enjoyed a corresponding right to be placed in such homes; (ii) the provision of subventions to persons who· were placed in private nursing homes; and (iii) the potential liability of the State in actions for breach of statutory duty and restitution by persons who were refused access to public nursing homes by health boards.
