Virtual Wallet for One-Off PHBS - COPD


One-off PHBs - COPD

NHS England is testing the use of low value one-off personal health budget payments (OO PHBs) for people with COPD, building on their successful application in discharge (part of the Urgent and Emergency Care Recovery Plan).

The aim is to test and evaluate the use of OO PHBs to increase participation in Pulmonary Rehab (PR) and / or supported self-management and will be targeted specifically at those that experience barriers to access due to health inequalities such as deprivation.

The seven Lung Health @home test sites have been offered the opportunity to maximise the support offer for patients identified and prioritised for PR by testing the use of OO PHB proof aligned with/or to supplement their current change ideas.
