Personal Health Budgets
A personal health budget is an amount of money to support a person with continuing care needs or particularly complex health needs that we are not able to meet using locally commissioned health services.
The most important thing about a personal health budget is that the patient is at the heart of the planning and is supported to have as much choice and control over how their health needs are met as possible.
If you are eligible, you can have the cash to spend in a way that is agreed in your plan and will meet your health outcomes, or you can choose how your money should be spent but ask that the Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) or a third party handles the money for you.
More information regarding personal health budgets can be found on the NHS Personal Health Budget webpage.
