The latest NHS England Bulletin for CCGs includes an invitation to chief officers to sign up to a new development programme to support CCGs in widening their local offer of personal health budgets beyond NHS Continuing Healthcare.
More information about the Moving Forward with Personal Health Budgets CCG Development Programme can be found on the NHS England website, which includes the letter to chief officers. The response form can be found in the learning network (log in required).
Over the past month the NHS England Personal Health Budget Delivery Team have been running events with CCGs that have already made good progress in delivering personal health budgets to support the design of the new programme, the team would welcome your suggestions about what would help your CCG to develop your local offer of personal health budgets in line with the 2015/6 planning guidance. To find out more about the support available please sign up to our learning network to receive regular updates.
