Personal Health Budgets
A personal health budget is an amount of money to support your health and wellbeing needs, which is planned and agreed between you (or someone who represents you), and your local NHS team. It is not new money, but it may mean spending money differently so that you can get the care that you need.
A personal health budget allows you to manage your healthcare and support such as treatments, equipment and personal care, in a way that suits you. It works in a similar way to personal budgets, which allow people to manage and pay for their social care needs.
If you are eligible to have a personal health budget, then together with Kaleidoscope we will develop personalised care and support plan. This plan sets out your personal health wellbeing needs, the health outcomes you want to achieve, the amount of money in the budget and how you are going to spend it.
Once you PHB plan has been approved at panel we support you to put your plan into action and provide ongoing support.
