DH assigns £1.5m for personal health budgets launch

The government is setting aside £1.5 million to help fuel a national introduction of personal health budgets for certain NHS patients, which could take place later this year.

More than 60 primary care trusts in England are currently involved in a nationwide pilot programme, which, it is hoped, will help clarify how personal health budgets can best benefit patients, the aspects of care they could be spent on, and the best route of their implementation.
