Date Revised:

There are three different ways you can look after the money from a personal health budget.

You can:

  1. Open a new bank account and use the money to buy the care and support agreed in the care and support plan. 
  2. Ask an independent organisation to hold the money and pay for the care and support agreed in the care and support plan. 
  3. The NHS team arranges the care and support after agreeing with the person concerned and their carer. No money changes hands.
