A Personal Health Budget is an amount of money to support a person’s health and wellbeing needs, which is planned and agreed between the person (or someone who represents them) and the NHS. It is not about new money, but it may mean spending NHS money differently so that you can get the care you need in a way that works for you.
A Personal Health Budget allows you to manage your healthcare and support, such as treatments, equipment and personal care, in a way that suits you. It works in a similar way to Personal budgets for social care – NHS (www.nhs.uk) which allow people to manage and pay for their social care needs.
