Description:
The INHO is delighted to publish the second annual survey of the private nursing home sector. This year's survey is the most comprehensive survey ever undertaken. We would like to thank all respondents for taking the time to complete and return the questionnaire and without whom, this survey could not have been published. We specifically would like to thank Horwath Bastow Charleton for the work they have put in to making this years survey as comprehensive as it is. This year's survey includes useful information on other associated areas and a directory of the nursing homes across the country. The private nursing home sector has grown significantly again in 2004. The supply of private beds has grown by approximately 10 per cent in the year since the last survey was published and growth is forecast to continue at least at a similar level in the near future. While new tailor made, high specification beds are welcome, the addition of so many beds in such a short time period, inevitably throws up challenges for the existing operators in the sector. Allied to this, the Department of Health & Children appear to be unrelenting in their desire to develop additional geriatric care beds through Public Private Partnerships. Were these PPP beds to be developed, the sector would face worrying oversupply issues. The fact of the matter is that such growth in the private geriatric care sector is somewhat artificially led, due to the tax breaks available on nursing home developments. Paul Costello. Chief Executive. INHO.
