    In extreme circumstances, some elderly people requiring care can pay up to £2,000 in weekly care fees. Over a long period of time this can accumulate to a huge sum of money.

    The NHS method of means testing can be accused of not being accurate enough, therefore people who are being placed in private care could have, in fact received care of the NHS for free.
