Personal Health Budgets (PHB) Guidance for GPs

From April 2014 people eligible for NHS continuing healthcare (including parents of children) across England will have the right to ask for a Personal Health Budget (PHB). Others with long term health, physical or mental health conditions or disabilities may also benefit. CCGs act as brokers and are responsible for delivering PHBs.

The RCGP has produced a practical guide to support GPs in the introduction of personal health budgets in England. It explains what personal health budgets are, who might use them and how they can be implemented in a way that will benefit patients.

The guide has been written by a group with first-hand experience of personal health budgets in the pilot sites, including GPs and personal health budget managers.
