What made you decide to apply for a PHB in the first place?

"Often the people who make the decisions on your care plan actually do so with very little input from you. They work around standard procedures and rules that often don't really map very well onto your personal circumstances. The Personal health budget is designed to put you in the driving seat and for you to decide what you need and ultimately for you to have a voice"

Managing your PHB

A personal health budget is based upon a personalised care and support plan. This plan sets out someone’s health and wellbeing needs, the outcomes they wish to achieve, the amount of money available and how it will be spent.
