What is a Personal Health Budget?
A personal health budget or a ‘PHB’ is an amount of money used to support your health and well being needs, as agreed between you and your healthcare team.
The aim of a personal health budget is to give you more choice and control over the money spent on meeting your health and well being needs.
Your health and well being needs will be set out in a personalised care and support plan, which you and your healthcare team will develop together. PHB’s support the vision of a more personalised, patient-focused NHS.
