What is a Personal Health Budget

LSC Nursing and Care Services can support and manage your Personal Health Budget.

The idea of the scheme is that patients are given a set amount of money and can decide what care is best for them.  The aim is to give you as much control over your health care as you need.

They have already been used successfully in social care, and it is hoped that this new scheme will make a real difference to patients like you.

The personal health budgets are intended to be used for a range of things to meet peoples health and well being needs.  This might include therapies, personal care, or health needs.  

PHBs have been available for those with Continuing Healthcare (CHC) funding since April 2014. Continuing Healthcare means that someone is receiving care that has been arranged and fully funded by the NHS. They may be living in their own home.
