Public Service Reform

The government white paper on public service reform is due shortly. According to recent press reports,there is likely to be more focus on ‘payment by results’ contracts and a significant extension of personal budgets.

Personal budgets are currently only operational in health and social care, but are likely to be extended  to other groups such as children and young people, people with mental health issues and some other groups.

If you have any views on this or want more information, please contact us.
