    • Individual Empowerment in Kent
      Brief History
      • A new streamlined and cost effective solution was required for delivering direct payments
      • A system was needed for people who have been excluded in the past from having a direct payment
      • Kent County Council in partnership with The Royal Bank of Scotland developed a system that would revolutionise the direct payment process
    • Individual Empowerment in Kent
      The result was the first pre-loaded card programme for Direct Payment recipients
      ‘The Kent Card’
      Launched March 2007
    • Individual Empowerment in Kent
      Why did KCC introduce Kent Card?
      • To support the personalisation agenda in social care and empower individuals
      • Reduce the complexity around direct payments:
      - Kent Card removes the need to negotiate the opening of a bank account
      - Each card is pre loaded with an agreed amount
      Flexibility, Freedom, Choice and Control

      Backdrop
      “ You have the right to make choices about your NHS care and to information to support these choices. The options available to you will develop over time and depend on your individual needs.”

      What’s involved?
      There are 4 key stages Personal Health Budgets

      Agreeing the Care plan which sets out:
      • health needs / outcomes,
      • money in budget
