Personal Health Budgets

A personal health budget is an amount of money provided by the NHS to support you to meet your identified health and wellbeing needs. The aim is to give people with long-term conditions and disabilities greater choice and control over the healthcare and support they receive.

Personal health budgets work in a similar way to the personal budgets that many people are already using to manage and pay for their social care via the Local Authority.

How do I  get a Personal Health Budget?

At the moment only adults with long term health conditions and disabilities who qualify for NHS Continuing Health Care funding and children who qualify for Continuing Care can apply for a Personal Health Budget. 

If you think that you might qualify, talk to your GP or health professional. They will be able to give you information about the assessment process and whether you might qualify.

If you would like advice on the process, we are here to help. Call us on 020 8831 6088
