Personal Health Budgets

From April 2014 individuals who meet the eligibility for NHS Continuing Healthcare will be entitled to request a personal health budget.

To find out if you meet the criteria, go to the GOV.uk National Framework for NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS Funded Nursing Care website.

A personal health budget is NHS money allocated to an individual with identified health needs that enables them to have greater control when planning and meeting their chosen outcomes.

NHS Continuing Healthcare

NHS Continuing Healthcare LeafletA guide for individuals who may be in need of ongoing ‘continuing care’ support from health and social care professionals as a result of disability, accident or illness, and explains the process used to determine whether an individual is eligible for care funded entirely by the NHS.

NHS Continuing Healthcare is the name given to a package of care which is arranged and funded solely by the NHS for individuals outside of hospital who have ongoing healthcare needs. You can receive continuing healthcare in any setting, including your own home or a care home. NHS Continuing Healthcare is free, unlike help from social services for which a financial charge may be made depending on your income and savings.
