Right to ask for personal health budgets

People with complex health care needs now have the right to ask for a personal health budget.

The scheme is being rolled out across the country after the budgets were trialled in a national pilot programme between 2009 and 2012 at sites all over the country.

They give people more independence over how their healthcare money is spent from carers to provide intensive help at home, equipment to improve quality of life or therapies like counselling.
