HC Deb 19 May 2003 vol 405 c602W
John Mann

To ask the Secretary of State for Health how many people in residential care homes in England and Wales require 24 hour health care; and how many of these pay for their care costs. [113778]

Jacqui Smith

The Department does not collect this information on the basis of location. It would be most unusual for an individual in a care home not providing nursing care to require 24-hour health care. Six out of 10 care home residents receive some or all of their care costs from public funding.
