Opinon of Counsel re the provision of nursing home services for the Minister for Health and Children, 18th March 2005.
Department of Health and Children
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.
