Consultation on personal health budgets

One way of managing a personal health budget is a direct payment for healthcare, where money is given directly to an individual for the management of their NHS care.

They are currently only lawful within pilot sites. The government’s intention is to roll out personal health budgets more widely, including extending the use of direct  payments, by updating the regulations so that they can be offered  across the country. A new public consultation is consulting on the  details of the changes. This is an opportunity to have your say – so please visit the Department of Health’s online consultation pages  and let us know your views.
