Personal Health Budgets
Who can get a Personal Health Budget
Some children and young people have long term health and personal care needs outside of the hospital.
This is known as:
- 'Continuing Care' for children
- 'Continuing Health Care' for adults.
If you are eligible for either of these, you can apply for a Personal Health Budget.
You can request a Personal Health Budget through your care coordinator.
If you are eligible, they will carry out a Continuing Health Care Assessment to understand your health and wellbeing needs.
