Personal Health Budgets
Since October 2014, anyone who receives continuing healthcare has the right to have a personal health budget. A personal health budget (PHB) is an amount of money from the NHS allocated to an individual to support their identified health and wellbeing needs. PHBs are aimed at helping people maintain their independence, giving them more control over the support services and care they receive.
