Personal health budgets: the views of service users and carers

 

The NHS Confederation have published a 20-page report that examines the views of mental health service users and carers on personal health budgets.

Personal health budgets are defined as the allocation of NHS funding which patients/ service users, after an assessment, are able to personally control and use for the services they choose to support their health needs. It is distinct from a personal budget, which is a similar mechanism already in widespread use by local authorities for social care needs.
