The witnesses are very welcome. What is the status of the Department of Health's value for money review of the nursing homes support scheme? That report has not been published yet. When is it likely to be published and will it be out of date when it is published? Covid certainly shone a light on deficiencies. It is one thing paying for a service; it is another thing for that service to be adequate. The lack of staff ratios is a case in point. Do the witnesses have any update on when that review will be published or if it is being looked at again in advance of its publication because of Covid?
