This report is a summary of key findings, potential efficiency savings and recommendations from a 12-month pilot project (July 2017-July 2018) in East Lancashire to test a more effective approach to the delivery of personal health budgets, and personalised care and support.
The project was led by The Calico Group and also included East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Alocura and My Life as delivery partners.
This report has been prepared for the pilot delivery partners, but it may be of interest to a wider audience.
The model tested in East Lancashire, and the outcomes achieved, are replicable and show potential to be delivered at scale. Commissioning support units, clinical commissioning groups, local authorities and NHS England staff will benefit from the lessons outlined in the report, and its recommendations to assist with the implementation of personalised care at a local level and to support its nationwide spread.
