The team incorporating DKM Economic Consultants, AECOM, RDJ Solicitors and Rose McHugh has been tasked by the Department of Health to provide an analysis of Potential Measures to Encourage the Provision of Nursing Home and Community Nursing Unit

Specifically, four questions were to be addressed:

  1. What are the current and future requirements for facilities for the period 2015- 2035 by geographic area and what is the likely gap in the absence of additional measures to encourage provision?
  2. What are the reasons for the current lack of investment in facilities and what reasons have the most significant effect?
  3. What are the potential policy options for addressing the problem and how do the different options perform against key criteria?
  4. How does a preferred set of options perform under cost benefit analysis?
