From 1st September CCGs are expected to resume delivery of NHS Continuing Healthcare (NHS CHC) home care arrangements.
What does this mean for the workforce? All new NHS CHC home care packages should be set up as a personal health budget by default, and work should continue to transition existing traditional packages of care to a personal health budget.
What does this mean for people in receipt? People will know upfront what their budget is, will be involved in personalised care and support planning and have greater control over how the budget is used, including the option of a direct payment.
