Joint personal budgets: a new solution to the problem of integrated care?

SAVE ITEM

08 / 10 / 2012

Like many health systems around the world, the NHS struggles to find ways of delivering integrated care. Nowhere has this struggle been more evident than in services cutting across the health-social care divide: a decades-old problem that has, for the most part, confounded local and national leaders. Now a new tool offers a radically different approach – starting with the individual service user and giving them control of a single joint budget.

This Briefing introduces joint personal budgets for health and social care. It gives the context behind their development, explains how they might work and lists some of the issues that need to be considered before they could be used at scale.
