New toolkit to help you communicate about personal health budgets
The Personalised Care Group has developed a communications toolkit to support your work across the whole local health and social care economy, including patients.

As well as giving you a clear narrative, it has helpful guidance on stakeholder mapping, communications planning and channels available to you.

You can find the communication toolkit in the resources section of the Learning Network.

New personal health budget case studies
These newly published personal stories will help you illustrate the value of personal health budgets, to the individual themselves, those around them and the wider system:

  • Margaret’s arresting story shows how her brother’s PHB has made a difference for him, his family and the NHS.
  • Colin Royle explains what a difference a PHB meant to his father (with early onset dementia) and the whole family.
  • Neil’s blog tells how personalising the care of his disabled son has led him to the Peer Leadership Academy, and gives a personal perspective on partnership working and integration of services.
