Assets that can't be bought

Our life doesn't have to be about going from one drop-in centre to another," says Bee Harries, a patient at the South London and Maudsley NHS foundation trust (SLaM). Her care support comes in the form of a personal budget, and she uses some of it to pay for her care worker to come on a year-long pottery course with her. This makes Harries something of a model user of the flexibilities envisaged by proponents of personalised services. But the care package she arranged for herself goes some way beyond the latest thinking on personalised public services: she doesn't just accept services - she delivers them.
