In 2020, we were commissioned by the South East London Clinical Commissioning Group to work with local people from Lambeth and Southwark to help them understand the aim of Personal Health Budgets (PHBs) in relation to the NHS Long Term Plan and recommend a way to expand PHBs across the six borough of South East London (Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark).

Over the course of six facilitated sessions held between September 2020 and March 2021, our pilot co-production group discussed their lived experience and spoke to key stakeholders to identify how to improve and expand the use of PHBs in South East London. We also co-designed and circulated a survey to people with lived experience of PHBs and took case studies from group members to gain a wider view of people’s experiences and the barriers they may be facing.​​​​

​​​​​​Our co-written report gives an overview of our journey towards co-production and compiles our findings, recommendations and learning.
