NHS continuing healthcare is a package of on-going care that is arranged and funded solely by the NHS. It is designed to support individuals aged 18 or over who are found to have a primary health need which have arisen as a result of disability, accident or illness. 

A personal health budget is an amount of money that can be given directly to a person receiving NHS care to allow them to purchase care that is tailored to their individual needs.

The allocation of this budget is agreed between the individual and their continuing healthcare team, based upon a detailed care and support plan which identifies both healthcare and wellbeing outcomes.
