A personal health budget is an amount of money to support the identified healthcare and wellbeing needs of an individual, which is planned and agreed between the individual, or their representative, and the local clinical commissioning group (CCG).
Personal health budgets are one way to give people with long term health conditions and disabilities more choice and control over the money spent on meeting their health and wellbeing needs.
A personal health budget may be used for a range of things to meet agreed health and wellbeing outcomes. This can include therapies, personal care and equipment. There are some restrictions in how the budget can be spent.
If you want to know more or you have any questions about personal health budgets, you should contact your lead health professional.
We have also approved a local policy that sets out the principles of how it will implement the delivery of personal health budgets across Liverpool. You can find a copy of our Personal Health Budget Policy here.
