Following Lord Darzi’s pledge to pilot direct payments and individual budgets in health care, this paper provides a brief background to the concept and principles of these ways of working, before focusing in more detail on some frequently asked questions. The paper is intended to help inform forthcoming pilots, and was initially commissioned by
NHS West Midlands as part of their Investing for Health strategy.
