Think Local Act Personal

A range of personalised services provided to you by both the NHS and your local council, following an assessment of your needs. You may be given a joint package if you have health needs as well as social care needs, but not if your main need is for health care. If your main need is for health care, this is known as a 'primary health need' and you may be entitled to 'continuing health care'.
