In Control have co-produced new practical guides and information
about using personal health budgets for children and young people
for health services and their partners
We are pleased to launch four new publications about some of the
particular challenges around introducing and using personal health
- Personal health budgets and children's equipment - David Widdas
and Bernadette Simpson
- Personal health budgets and delegation of responsibilities -
Bernadette Simpson and David Widdas
- Personal health budgets and young people with complex needs -
Nicola Gitsham, NDTi
- Personal health budgets and joint commissioning - Claire
Lazarus and Andrew Tyson, In Control
Each publication draws on the expertise of the authors along
with a great deal of help and discussion with a wide array of
practitioners and others that are taking forward personal budgets
for children and young people with long term conditions. The
guides include discussion of the challenges faced by many involved
in developing local approaches and systems, they set out a
'provisional' set of recommendations for tackling these challenges.
Where possible links and examples have been included. The four
publications can be downloaded using the links below.
It's really important to note that these are a 'first attempt'
at documenting the challenges, work and examples and have been
produced to help people take the work forward in to the future.
They have been published with support and funding from NHS
England. Many thanks to the many members of the PHB Team at
NHS England for their help, advice and input to this work.
