Who can have a personal health budget

Adults who are eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare (CHC) and children and young people eligible for NHS Continuing Care (CC) are entitled to a personal health budget.

NHS Continuing Healthcare

Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and its partners will also be trialing personal health budgets and integrated budgets beyond these groups of patients through our involvement with the South West Integrated Personal Commissioning Programme . 

We will seek to develop and implement personal health budgets and integrated budgets during 2016/17 for the following:

  • 10 Children and young people with complex needs, including those eligible for education, health and care plans
  • 10 People with learning disabilities with high support needs, including those who are in institutional settings or at risk of placement.

This approach will help us to understand how we can make this option a possiblity for more people in the longer term.
