Personal Health Budget (PHB) Quality Framework

Front of PHB Quality Framework Report

This PHB Quality Framework will support collaboration across integrated care systems (ICSs) to build on best practice and realise the improved outcomes and experience of NHS care and support that PHBs can offer for people. Integrated care boards (ICBs) will play a vital role in supporting partners to deliver high quality PHBs, offering strategic support to ensure PHBs are part of the solution to improve outcomes, tackle inequalities and make best use of resources.

When we really focus on what matters to people rather than what is the matter with them, we see a shift – PHBs support people to build on their strengths and develop their existing support networks, and empower staff to offer care and support that is flexible and innovative.

We continue our national commitment to deliver on the mandate expectation for 200,000 people to have a PHB by 2023/24 and hope that this framework supports ICBs and partner organisations to make this a reality.
