Recovery, Personalisation and Personal Budgets (Centre for Mental Health)

[A brief reference to this item appears in: Dementia and Elderly Care: the Latest Evidence Newsletter (RWHT), Volume 3 Issue 3, October 2012].


This briefing paper, produced by the Centre for Mental Health and the NHS Confederation Mental Health Network, explores the relationship between personalisation and recovery. It outlines eight preconditions which need to be put in place for personal health budgets (PHBs) in the NHS and personal budgets (PBs) in social care to support recovery. The requirements specified in this document are:

  1. A simple, fair resource allocation system.
  2. Effective recovery planning (combined with effective support when required).
  3. New approaches to opportunity and safety.
  4. A more diverse workforce.
  5. Monitoring on the basis of outcomes not spending.
  6. A new evidence base.
  7. A more diverse market.
  8. Sustainable funding.

This is the second briefing paper from Implementing Recovery through Organisational Change (ImRoc).
