The NHS is there for us from the moment we are born. It takes care of us and our family members when we need it most.
The NHS Constitution was created to protect the NHS and ensure it will always do the things it was set up to do when launched in 1948: provide high quality healthcare that is free and for everyone.
To help all healthcare services provide a prompt, courteous and efficient service to all, we ask you to:
- Use appointment and prescription systems appropriately and responsibly
- Supply information requested by NHS staff
- Treat NHS staff with courtesy and respect
