Personal Health Budgets (PHB)

From April 2014 anyone eligible for CHC has the right to have a personal health budget. A personal health budget can be provided in a range of ways and gives people a greater choice over how, when and who provides their care and support. A personal health budget can be discussed in detail with the nurse assessor responsible for your assessment or review. 

The Department of Health and Social Care also publishes a public information booklet on NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS-funded Nursing Care which can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-framework-for-nhs-continuing-healthcare-and-nhs-funded-nursing-care 

 

More information will be available soon.
