Some of the people who rely most on NHS services now get the right to have their care delivered through a personal health budget.
Adults eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare will now have the option of directing how their health budget is best used to meet their own personal health outcomes.
It will also apply to children who receive continuing care.
A personal health budget is a sum of money from the NHS used to meet your assessed health and wellbeing needs.
Personal health budgets aim to provide more choice and flexibility, and give you greater control over your Continuing Healthcare decisions. This is because you know better than anyone how your condition affects you.
