Understanding personal health budgets

The Department has published a revised version of the leaflet on personal health budgets relating to personal health budgets pilot programme.

Personal health budgets is one of the ideas that the NHS is promoting in order to make it easier to get the care that is best suited to particular individuals.

The leaflet explains the concept of a personal health budget being offered to individuals, especially those with a long term condition, and how this can also be used by healthcare professionals, commissioners, and support organisations.  It also includes answers to frequently asked questions, shares personal stories and provides further sources of information about personal health budgets.
