Personal health budgets in action

Our vision for personal health budgets is to enable people with long term conditions and disabilities to have greater choice, flexibility and control over the health care and support they receive.

Here you can access a series of films and patient stories that show how personal health budgets have worked for people.

These stories show us what the process is like, what people spend their money on and how they decided on this. The films also include the perspectives of family, carers and health care professionals. We hope these films illustrate the kind of choices people can make if they have a personal health budget, and the positive impact it can have on their health and lives.

You can also read about professionals’ experiences of supporting people to have personal health budgets.

You can find other personal experiences of personal health budgets on NHS Choices and peoplehub website.
