Personal health budgets are being rolled out across the NHS. To deliver good outcomes for people, commissioners and providers will need to pay close attention to how budgets are implemented. This briefing, produced in partnership with Think Local Act Personal, highlights relevant information, support and guidance and answers some frequently asked questions. 

The NHS Confederation has discussed experiences of making personal health budgets happen with a number of NHS leaders and managers. From these discussions emerged a range of common issues, for which further information and support was felt to be helpful.

The issues raised included:

  • how to deliver personal health budgets in ways that support integrated, personalised care
  • how much implementation would cost
  • how to identify and prioritise those groups who would benefit most, for offering personal health budgets beyond continuing healthcare
  • how to avoid double running costs and prepare for the services and interventions people will want
  • how to manage risk.
