First high-need services users get their own health and social care budgets
NHS England and the Local Government Association have named the first eight sites that will, for the first time, combine health and social care funding for individuals and allow them to take control of how it is used.
The first wave of the integrated personal commissioning (IPC) programme will go live on 1 April 2015, providing some 10,000 people with complex needs with greater power to decide how their own combined health and social care budget is spent. The start of the programme is a key first stage in the delivery of the NHS Five Year Forward View set out in October 2014.
