Personal health budgets

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 allows the NHS from 1 April 2014, for the first time, to make direct payments to individuals for health care in the form of a personal health budget.

It also provides for integration of health and social care services and a collaborative approach to assessment of needs and delivery models.

 


A personal health budget is a sum of money allocated by the NHS to fund care and support for those with long term health needs. It allows individuals to decide what care they need, how they want their care delivered and by whom, affording independence, control and choice.

Unfortunately, not all Clinical Commissioning Groups have embraced this new way of providing healthcare services. This can make it very challenging for individuals to achieve personalisation and control. Anyone who is eligable for NHS continuing healthcare is entitled to a personal health budget. 

We offer legal support services in this area to include:

  • free case assessment

  • advice on entitlement to NHS Continuing Care

  • identification of care needs

  • access to independent care / occupational therapy experts

  • all advocacy services

  • negotiation of budget to meet all care needs

  • appeals and reviews

  • care and support planning
