Personal health budgets: the views of service users and carers


10 / 08 / 2011

Completing our series of studies into what key groups in the NHS think of personal health budgets, this report examines the views of mental health service users and carers. It outlines the frustration that people feel with the level of involvement that mental health services currently offer, but shows that their opinions of personal health budgets are mixed. There is scepticism over how this national policy can effectively change the current culture of provision on the ground.

With the evaluation of personal health budgets due to be published in October 2012, the report gives recommendations for how Government and local NHS organisations should proceed.
