4 What is a Personal Health Budgets? A personal health budget is an amount of money to support a person’s identified health and wellbeing needs, planned and agreed between the person and their local NHS team.The vision for personal health budgets is to enable people with long term conditions and disabilities to have greater choice, flexibility and control over the health care and support they receive.Personal health budgets offer the opportunity for people to work in equal partnership with the NHS about how their health and wellbeing needs can best be met.Personal health budgets are not about new money, but about using resource differently
5 They can be managed in 3 ways Options for holding the budget:Notional budgetThird party budgetDirect payment
8 The Story So Far.Pilot programme - large scale controlled trial evaluationRecruited 2,000 people.Concentrated on Mental Health, Continuing Health Care, COPD, Diabetes, long term neurological conditions, stroke. Also discreet studies into maternity, substance misuse and end of life care.Results - better outcomes, reduced use of hospital, cost effective especially for people with the highest needs.
9 Government Commitments Right to ask from April in adult NHS Continuing Healthcare and children’s continuing care.Right to have from October same groups as above.NHS Mandate - will be an option for people with long term physical and mental health conditions who could benefit from April 2015.Direct payment regulations– NHS everywhere in England can offer direct payments from August 2013.CCGs have the responsibility for delivery even if Continuing Health Care/continuing care services are being delivered by CSUs.
10 Need to do it right.Evaluation - benefits of personal health budgets depend on how they were introduced.Best results – people know budget up front; advice and support available; choice and flexibility over how to spend budget , choice on how it is managed.Scale-up - challenge of maintaining the integrity of the values.To work well, personal health budgets needgood support from all parts of the system.co-production with people with direct experience.
