NHS Constitution

Child being assessed

The NHS Constitution brings together in one place what patients, the public, and staff can expect from the NHS.

It also explains what you can do to support the NHS, help it work effectively and ensure its resources are used responsibly.

One of the most important things the NHS Constitution does is to set out your rights as an NHS patient. These rights cover how you access health services, the quality of care you’ll receive, the treatments and programmes available to you, confidentiality, information and your right to complain if things go wrong.
