Personal Health Budgets : John Taylor Hospice
The Personal Health Budgets (PHBs) Project is a new way of providing services for palliative patients within the last 12 weeks of life. PHBs enable patients and their families more choice and control over their health and social needs, encouraging uniquely individualised care. The project was piloted in Birmingham by John Taylor Hospice, Birmingham and Solihull CCG and Birmingham Voluntary Service Council in partnership with Birmingham City Council (Better Care Fund) in 2018-19. This pilot was successful and was expanded from October 2019 to include patient from St Giles Hospice, Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and Marie Curie Hospice West Midlands.
