The NHS Constitution

NHS Constitution

The NHS Constitution brings together in one place what the NHS does, what it stands for and the commitments it should live up to.

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

You can find more information about the NHS Constitution on the NHS Choices website.

NHS Portsmouth also has its own constitution.
