Human Rights act to include people who receive nursing and personal care

POSTED ON DECEMBER 8TH, 2008

The protection of the Human Rights Act has been extended to include people living in publicly funded accommodation with nursing or personal care.

The extension which came into action on December 1st will mean that under section 145 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 providers of accommodation with care will be treated as exercising a function of a public nature. This means that people using these publicly funded care services will now be protected by the Human Rights Act, but, adult placements are not affected by this legislation.
