Since April, 2014, all Clinical Commissioning Groups have needed to be ready to offer personal health budgets to people in receipt of continuing health care. The Government is now aiming to introduce personal health budgets more widely for other people with health conditions who would benefit from them most.

The Government has also recently launched the Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) Programme which will offer people with high support needs the ability to control their own blended NHS and community care, in partnership with the voluntary sector.

These workshops offer participants an opportunity to learn about essential aspects of personal health budgets and integrated personal budgets.

All workshops will be co-facilitated by two peoplehub team members one of whom will always be a person with lived experience of personal health budgets. Peoplehub is a not-for-profit organisation. Our aim is to connect and empower, give people a voice, and influence the development of personal health budgets so they stay true to purpose.

Our workshops are relevant to a wide range of interested people involved in implementing personal health budgets including commissioners, individuals and families, health care teams, health professionals, providers, user-led organisations and social care professionals. We believe it’s important to involve everyone from the start.
