Personal Health Budget Holders
PERSONAL HEALTH BUDGET HOLDERS
The NHSPHB survey has been extended until 31 May! If you have a Personal Health Budget, we really encourage you to share your experience and help the NHS help you.
PHBChoices gives Personal Health Budget (PHB) holders choice and control over their own care. PHB holders can manage their own account, or appoint a family member or carer to act as their proxy agent. They can search for products and services in line with their care plan, interact with both local and national care providers in a secure environment and pay for their care using their online accounts and virtual wallets for cashless transactions.
PHBChoices makes it easier to choose and purchase products and services, simplifying the process thereby enabling them to focus on their care rather than its administration. This gives the PHB holder and their family full visibility and control over the budget they have available to spend in any period.
