Our advice for clinicians on the coronavirus is here.
If you are a member of the public looking for health advice, go to the NHS website. And if you are looking for the latest travel information, and advice about the government response to the outbreak, go to the gov.uk website.
Some of the people who rely most on NHS services today get the right to have their care delivered through a personal health budget.
It marks an important landmark in NHS England’s vow to get serious about the personalisation of care for people living with long term, disabling or life limiting health conditions.
It will allow around 60,000 adults eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare, and children who receive continuing care, the option of directing how their health budget is best used to meet their own personal health outcomes.
