Webinar for professionals who are introducing personal health budgets to people with learning disabilities
TLAP commissioned the guide Personal Health Budgets- Including People with Learning Disabilities. A webinar will take place in June to introduce the guide to people responsible for implementing, or supporting implementation of Personal Health Budgets (PHB) to people with learning disabilities.
From October 2014 people eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare (NHS CHC) will have the 'right to ask' for a PHB. Many people with learning disabilities belong in this category and research suggests that self-directed support has a positive impact on meeting their social care needs.
The free webinar, run by TLAP and the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) is intended to support staff in preparation for this change. There will be online presentations and opportunities to join a discussion on how the guide can benefit staff in their work.
