The 2014 NHS England document “Guidance on Direct Payments For Healthcare – Understanding the Regulations” has been updated this month.
There’s a fair bit been changed and added, and the changes have all been really helpfully highlighted within the document. It’s also been updated to reflect the introduction of Integrated Care Boards which replaced Clinical Commissioning Groups in July 2022.
This guidance is such a useful document for personal health budget holders to have and use, so it’s worthwhile having a read to familiarise yourself with the changes that have been made to it.
