NHS Constitution

The principles and values

The NHS Constitution establishes the principles and values of the NHS in England. It sets out patient and staff rights and responsibilities. It protects the NHS and helps ensure we receive high-quality healthcare that is free for everyone.

The NHS Constitution brings together in one place details of what staff, patients and the public can expect from the National Health Service. It also explains what you can do to help support the NHS, help it work effectively, and help ensure that its resources are used responsibly.

East Cheshire NHS Trust has such regard for the NHS Constitution and we embed this in our delivery of patient care.
