Children, young people and families’ personal health budget peer network
Thursday, 11th December: 11am to 2.30pm
Manchester Conference Centre, Sackville St., Manchester M1 3BB
Personal health budgets are still a relatively new idea within the NHS.
As of October 2014 people have had the ‘right to have’ a PHB and as such all CCGs need to have systems in place to offer personal health budgets to both children and adults receiving continuing care.
NHS England and Peoplehub have been successfully working together to influence the national policy direction for personal health budgets and to work alongside people tasked with introducing personal health budgets to do it well.
Up until now we have largely focussed on introducing personal health budgets for adults in receipt of NHS continuing healthcare. As the member of the NHS England personal health budgets team with responsibility for developing personal health budgets for children with other key partners, I am very keen to work directly with you as someone with a child with complex and continuing health care needs who understands the issues.
We need your input and guidance to ensure that personal health budgets work well for your children. This is a genuine opportunity to influence how we develop and implement personal health budgets. Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about them, we will take the time to explain everything to you so you feel confident to share your insights. We would really value your contributions.
We would like to invite you to come along to a meeting on 11th December to begin to think about how we can work together to influence this new policy going forward.
We can arrange and pay for a train ticket from your nearest train station to the Manchester Conference Centre, and will reimburse you £15.00 per hour whilst you are at the meeting.
If you are interested in coming along please go to the NHS England website to book a place. Follow this link http://www.events.england.nhs.uk/all/270
