pooled budget

pooled budget

An aggregation of balances (assets and liabilities) which belong to the pooled budget partners rather than to an entity in its own right. The funding for pooled budgets comes from health authorities, primary care trusts and local authorities to meet the needs of a specific group (e.g. older people). Pooled budgets were introduced under the Health Act 1999.
