People who have healthcare needs may be awarded an allocation of money by the NHS to help support them, these are known as a Personal Health Budgets. The money is paid directly to the person in need of care so that the money can be used for a care provider of their choice.
Those who receive NHS Continuing Healthcare are also eligible to receive a Personal Health Budget which provides them with more independence, involvement, and flexibility in their care plan.
Personal Health Budgets allow those who qualify for it to use the money to organise care with the NHS to identify suitable options or use it directly to choose their own high-quality home care company such as ourselves.
Personal Health Budgets work similarly to Personal Budgets. However, there are two distinct differences:
- Personal Health Budgets are for healthcare needs such as personal care.
- Personal Budgets are for social care needs such as maintaining hobbies.
