As part of its work with NHS England, and due to a grant from
the Department of Health, In Control is able to offer a limited
number of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) free use of POET
(Personal Budgets Outcomes Evaluation Tool).
To find out more about how you can access and use POET,
representatives from CCGs are invited to attend a webinar on
Tuesday 3rd December at 11am until 12 noon.
The webinar will be presented by John Waters at In Control and
there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
POET has been developed over several years by In Control and
Lancaster University as a way for personal budget holders and
carers to report their experiences of personal budgets. It has now
been adapted so it is relevant for people using personal health
budgets, and their carers.
POET enables CCGs to;
- capture the outcomes and experiences of a sample of local
personal health budgets users and family carers and;
- identify through analysis and benchmarking, those areas of
local strength and those requiring improvement action
In May 2013, we published the first national report on personal
health budgets using the findings from POET.
You can download a copy of the report and find out more about
POET for health on this web page.
You can also find out more information about our work with NHS
England and our support programme for CCGs here.
