Personal Health Budgets e-learning

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) has worked in partnership with NHS England to develop an e-learning programme about personal health budgets.

Personal health budgets 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.

Adults who are eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare and children who are in receipt of continuing care have had a right to have a personal health budget since October 2014. Since April 2015, clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) have been looking at expanding their local personal health budget offer to other people who could benefit.

The e-learning programme, which is aimed at those who are supporting individuals to plan for their own care, introduces personal health budgets and explains how they work for people.  The resource also covers how to address some of the personal health budget challenges faced by the NHS and the plans to expand availability to other people with complex and long term health conditions.
