What is the NHS Constitution?
The NHS Constitution guides the NHS in everything it does, making sure that patients are involved in their treatment and care and safeguarding the future of the NHS. The Constitution, which is recognised by law, has been developed to help people to feel that they can take control and make choices over their care. It explains that by working together we can make the very best use of resources to:
-improve our health and wellbeing
-keep mentally and physically well
-get better when we are ill
- when we cannot recover, to stay as well as we can to the end of our lives.
