Why are personal wheelchair budgets being introduced ?

Personal wheelchair budgets are being introduced as part of a range of measures to improve current wheelchair service provision, to ensure people have better experiences of care and to give people greater choice over the wheelchair provided.

Personal wheelchair budgets are replacing the wheelchair voucher scheme. They build on progress to offer personal health budgets to more groups of people and ensure people receive care that is right for them.

In 2015 the National Wheelchair Leadership Alliance produced the Wheelchair Charter which highlighted key actions required to support better wheelchair services and improved quality of life for every wheelchair user.

Personal wheelchair budgets support the delivery of two key actions highlighted in the charter:

A person centred service that works in partnership with service users and their carers and makes the user/carer voice central to any design, innovation and service change.

Innovative and flexible budgeting working with key partners to strengthen integration across health, social care, work and education, enabling the accommodation of individual needs, independence, health and wellbeing.

Personal wheelchair budgets have been developed by NHS England’s Personalised Care Group, which is responsible for leading a range of programmes that are essential to the successful delivery of the Five Year Forward View. This sets out a clear vision for the NHS to empower people and their families to have far greater control over their own care and break down barriers between health and social care.​
It also applies to people who have had a "Section 117".

Personal health budgets for mental health

Personal health budgets are a way of offering individuals with disabilities and long term conditions greater choice and control in how the NHS supports them in improving their health and managing their care.

Personal health budgets are closely aligned to one of the central strands of service transformation in mental health: recovery. Adopting a recovery focused approach to mental health services means moving beyond symptom and risk management to support people to re-establish a meaningful life for themselves with their mental health condition. Recovery requires services to look beyond treatment to consider wider issues such as housing, employment and family relationships. As a highly personal journey, recovery depends on services being able to develop individually tailored approaches. Personal health budgets are a tool to support more recovery focused services by allowing individuals to define their own outcomes and design their own packages of care and support.

The personal health budget evaluation found that personal health budgets had particularly positive impacts for those with mental health problems. The pilot programme included more than 20 sites that offered personal health budgets for mental health. These sites worked with a range of different populations, from older people with dementia to young people in the early intervention service and with a range of different types and sizes of budget, from small one off budgets to kick start recovery to larger annual budgets that included clinical services.

The Department of Health and Social Care announced in February 2019 that the legal right to a personal health budget is being extended to people eligible for section 117 aftercare services.

Over the past few years a number of areas have been moving forward with offering personal health budgets to people with mental health problems.

Find out how NHS Nene CCG & NHS Corby CCG have approached offering personal health budgets as a mainstream option in mental health services.

Thanks for the article. This explains why my cared for person now has a personal budget. I received a call earlier this week but I did not understand.
It's there on Internet for anyone to find ... as I did in response to BB.
You are so much better than us at finding it though Chris!
Where would we be without you???
In the kingdom of the blind , the one eyed man is the king ?

Not quite ...

PBs instead of vouchers ?

Without researching , the cynic in me suspects that the PBs will , in reality , be less ?
