Personal Health Budgets
Norman Lamb, Care and Support Minister, has announced that the Government intends to roll out personal health budgets following successful piloting over the last three years. An evaluation report published this week shows that personal health budgets have the potential to improve the quality of life for people with long-term health conditions and disabilities.
Peoplehub, a social enterprise and growing national network of people with lived experience of personal health budgets, welcomes the report. Jo Fitzgerald, co-founder peoplehub, says:
“We know from our own experience that personal health budgets can improve people’s lives without costing any more so we’re delighted that personal health budgets will be available more widely to people who would benefit from new and innovative ways of receiving their health care.”
