Personal Health Budgets
What is a personal health budget?
A personal health budget is an amount of money to support the identified health and wellbeing needs of an individual, which are planned and agreed between you (or someone who represents you), or their representative, and your local NHS Team.
The aim of a personal health budget is to make sure people with long term health conditions and disabilities have greater choice and control around how money is spent on meeting their recognised health and wellbeing needs. They are one way of helping people to be more involved in discussions and decisions about their care.
How do I find out more?
If you feel you or your representative feels that you meet the criteria above, speak to the health professional who helps you most often with your care for more information.
Alternatively, you can learn more about personal health budgets on the NHSE website
