“Personal health budgets (PHBs) 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 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). It isn’t new money, but a different way of spending health funding to meet the needs of an individual.” (from Understanding Personal Health Budgets)

NAVCA (National Association for Voluntary and Community Action) is running two webinars to support voluntary sector organisations to learn more about PHBs.  The webinars, on July 3rd 2:00pm – 3:00pm or July 26th 11:00am to 12:00noon will cover:

  • what are personal health budgets and who can they benefit
  • what Clinical Commissioning Groups mean by a local offer
  • how organisations can work together to promote local solutions, and share experiences and build local connections.

If you would like to join the webinar, please use this link at the time of the webinar. You will be prompted by the Zoom software to join the meeting. No pre-registration is required for these.
