Why the Archbishop of Canterbury wants you to come to his nursing home
Posted February 12, 2019 08:12:10A new nursing home has opened its doors to the UK’s poorest residents after a decade-long battle with the government over the rights of patients to access it.
The Church of England’s Bishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has made it clear that he does not consider the facility a home for the poor, but the former Royal College of Nursing said the move was welcome.
Its leader, Sir Andrew Dilnot, said the plan was “in line with the Archbishop’s view of how we ought to work together”.
“The Bishop is not a person of a political bent but he is a person who believes in the importance of the care of the vulnerable,” he said.
“The care that the Bishop provides in a home setting is something that the UK needs to do more of.”
We are grateful for this opportunity to work with the Church of Wales and the Bishop of Oxford, and for the Bishop to open up his home for our members to visit and visit the Bishop.
“The Bishop of Rochester, who is now in his fourth year as Bishop of Bristol, has also welcomed the move.
But, he said, it was important for the people of the UK to understand that there were also many people in the UK who did not qualify for the nursing home.
The plan for the Church’s nursing home in Wolliwell in Kent, near Canterbury Cathedral, is part of a wider package of reforms announced by the government last week that will allow nursing homes to reopen if their health and safety conditions improve.
In a letter to the Archbishop, Lord Carey, then the Home Secretary, said it was an “important milestone” for the country to have a new nursing centre open.
Mr Welby said: “We have been working very hard to get the right conditions right for our people, and this is a significant step forward.
“We have seen some of the most desperate and desperate people who have not been able to get on a waiting list and we are very happy to see this facility open to our members and our guests.”
But the Government’s proposals will come into effect on January 1.
They will include an exemption from the Government for the provision of nursing home services to those who do not qualify under the government’s Universal Credit benefit scheme.
And, unlike the Catholic nursing home that is being shut down, the new nursing facility will be open to all people, not just those who are entitled to care.
This will include children, pensioners, people with disabilities and those in receipt of benefits from the Social Security system.
Church of England spokesman Andrew Diland said: “It is great to see a new facility opening to the country’s poorest in a way that helps ensure our members get the help they need and the care they deserve.
For a long time, our health and welfare system has been a poor fit for the many people who need it most.
We welcome this step towards a more efficient, compassionate and compassionate NHS.
To achieve this, we need to address the root causes of the crisis and that is where we need the most investment in nursing homes.
Bishop Diland is expected to hold a press conference at the Bishop’s home to announce more details of the new arrangement.
He said: “This is a very welcome step in the right direction but we must keep working together and work towards a sustainable system of care.
“We need to be honest and honest about the problems in our care system, which is why we have been putting a lot of effort into bringing in this new facility.”
Baptist Nursing Home in Wirral, south Wales, is one of three new nursing homes opening this week that are part of the Government plan to tackle the rising cost of care in England.
It opened in April, but only opened to patients from October last year.
At the time of its opening, it cost the Government £7.5 million ($11.8 million) to run.
A report from the Church said it would be difficult to find more than 5 per cent of the population who would qualify for care.
