|Summary / Abstract|
Because integrating personal budgets is a relatively new initiative, evidence is still emerging about the impact they might have on people’s health and wellbeing.
However, evidence suggests that people with mental health problems can benefit significantly from having increased choice and control over their care, because their needs tend to cross boundaries between health and social care.
This section discusses some of the evidence from a recent evaluation of personal health budgets. It also describes some recent initiatives by government to promote the integration of services around an individual’s needs.
