About the role

Personal health budgets (PHBs) are a way of personalising care, based around what matters to people and their individual strengths and needs. They give people more choice, control and flexibility over their healthcare, allowing them to develop a package of care tailored to what will help them to be well and stay well.

This role will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the PHB service. The post-holder will act as the point of contact for complex queries, allocate referrals, provide line management support to the PHB advisors and carry a small case load of PHB referrals. You will work closely with the PHB manager and team to identify areas for development and explore further PHB opportunities, specifically developing the third-party service offer for personal health budgets. This role will require an enhanced DBS check.

 

About The Advocacy Project

We help marginalised and vulnerable people make effective choices about what happens in their lives. We also support them to speak up and help improve important services we all need. We want to make sure people across all age and care groups – including learning disability and mental health – can:

  • voice their concerns
  • understand their rights
  • make effective choices about what happens in their lives

We do this through advocacy services which support people individually, and user involvement projects that help organisations improve the services they offer.
