NHS Constitution

The NHS is founded on a common set of principles and values that bind together the communities and people it serves – patients and public – and the staff who work for it.

 

This Constitution establishes the principles and values of the NHS in England.

 

It sets out rights to which patients, public and staff are entitled, and pledges which the NHS is committed to achieve, together with responsibilities which the public, patients and staff owe to one another to ensure that the NHS operates fairly and effectively.

 

All NHS bodies, private and third sector providers supplying NHS services are required by law to take account of this Constitution in their decisions and actions.

 

The Constitution will be renewed every 10 years, with the involvement of the public, patients and staff.
