Personal health budgets: Guide for GPs
Guided GPs through the maze of health budgets
This PDF guide explains personal health budgets, which give patients more choice over the care they can get. It was written so that certain sections could be referred to while advising a patient, and the design had to make this possible.
Through questions and answers, the flow chart on p. 4 guides the decision on whether a patient is eligible for a personal health budget. If they are, links on that page lead to more details. It also serves as an at-a-glance reminder of the options the GP needs to keep in mind.
