Personal health budgets scheme forces mental health centre closure

Comment

PHBs for continuing health care (NHS) allows patients to choose where to spend their money. This is up and running in most areas of the NHS. However this still has to be agreement of where the money is spent. This of course depends on health care clinicians and management. Decisions are made in different ways in different places. It is quite likely that in some geographical areas the criteria of where the PHBs is spent is more liberal allowing money to be spent on such things as theatre tickets.
