Your Rights

Everyone who is cared for by the NHS in England has formal rights to make choices about the service that they receive.  These include the right to choose a GP surgery, to state which GP you'd like to see, to choose which hospital you're treated at, and to receive information to support your choices. These rights form part of the NHS Constitution, some are explained below. If you would like further information about these rights or would clarify any other health or social care rights you have contact us.
