Personal Health Budgets

A Personal Health Budget is a sum of money that is allocated to an individual to enable them to meet their assessed health and well-being needs, in a way that makes sense to them.  It is not additional or new money, but about enabling people to have more choice and flexibility with their budget.  It offers people the opportunity to take an active role in planning, directing and managing their health and well-being care needs, enabling individuals to achieve the best possible outcomes.
