The POET (Personalisation Outcome Evaluation Tool) surveys for personal budget holders and for carers of personal budget holders in social care have been developed over several years as a way for personal budget holders and carers to report their experiences of personal budgets.
The latest versions of the POET surveys for social care were adapted for this project to try and suit the circumstances of people using personal health budgets and their carers.
Towards capturing understanding and sharing experiences of people locally.
In total, 195 personal health budget holders and 117 carers across 12 sites completed the POET survey and gave their agreement for the information to be used.
For the free text responses, we used themes that had emerged from the first National personal budget survey. The list of themes was updated to reflect free text comments included in this years survey.
Each quote was then examined and assigned to one or more themes depending on what the person had written – for most comments a judgement was also made on whether the comment was mainly positive, or neutral in relation to the theme.
There were no gender or age differences in usage of any type of personal health budget, or any differences according to people’s self-reported health
A substantial majority of personal health budget holders (80.0%) reported having been told their weekly support costs.
