“The Children’s Community Nurse along with DaCE Cumbria staff sorted everything out for me and the package has totally changed our lives as a family. We were reluctant about it at first because of the illness and needs of my child and other things going on in the family, but we are so glad we did as it has made such a difference, everyone is happier and less stressed”

Personal Health Budgets are a way of personalising care, based around what matters to an individual. It is an amount of money to support identified healthcare and wellbeing needs, which is planned and agreed between the individual and the Clinical Commissioning group. Personal Health Budgets give people more choice and control over how their health and wellbeing needs are met.
