Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Request for Information 

We are pleased to respond to your request for information and our response is set out below: 

Request/ Response

As you are probably aware, a survey has been commissioned by NHS England to look into the experiences of patients who receive a Personal Health Budget, Integrated Personal Budget and/or a Personal Wheelchair Budget.


It has been brought to my attention that some CCGs have chosen not distribute this to the budget holders that they support. With this in mind, can the CCG please confirm:

1. How many patients receive a Personal Health Budget or Integrated Personal Budget in your area?

Cumulative figures as at Q4 2018/19:

Children – 80, Adults – 468, Total 548

2. How many patients receive or have received a Personal Wheelchair Budget in your area?

From the information we hold this is not known. We advise you contact the provider for this information – Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – foi@sth.nhs.uk.

3. How many of these patients (Q1 & Q2) have been made aware of the survey?

All current active CHC PHB users (244) have been made aware. For details of remaining patients you will need to contact the providers directly.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust – foi@sth.nhs.uk

Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust – foi@sch.nhs.uk

Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust – foi@shsc.nhs.uk

4. If a decision has been made not to promote the survey, can you please explain why?


5. If the CCG has not yet promoted the survey but intends to do so in the near future, when will your budget holders be contacted with the information (nb. the survey opened on the 14th March and will be open until the 14th May)?
