    The Recovery and Wellbeing Centre in Basildon, run by charity MIND, was forced to close following NHS Basildon and Brentwood CCG diverting funding to personal health budgets for people with mental illnesses, reports Pulse Today.

    The CCG have said that personal health budgets allow patients more choice on what treatment they receive. GP leaders, however, have said that this health budgets ‘to proliferate in an unplanned manner’.

    A post on the Basildon MIND Facebook page announced: ‘Unfortunately, since the implementation of Personal Health Budgets our funding has been drastically reduced, which has led to us being unable to continue this service. We would like to thank everyone that has supported us over the years and we hope that you will continue to support the remaining services of Basildon MIND.’

    Local news reports found that the charity lost around £160k due to the new funding arrangements.

    NHS Basildon and Brentwood CCG said: “This is not and has never been about cutting services but rather making them work for local people.”
