Personal health budgets
This website provides information and news about the Department of Health's personal health budgets policy being rolled out nationally in the NHS; and is home to a learning network for NHS and social care professionals involved in personal health budgets. Our vision for personal health budgets is to enable people with long term conditions and disabilities to have greater choice, flexibility and control over the health care and support they receive.
