Personalisation services are developing in England as a social policy response to user demands for more tailored, effective and flexible forms of health and social care support. Across England and Wales, this process is being implemented under the personalization which is also seen as a vehicle for promoting service user rights through increasing participation, empowerment and control while also promoting self-restraint by having users manage the costs of their health and social care. This paper reviews the existing research evidence for personalization, albeit limited, and identifies themes for future research.
