Detail

Please take part in a short survey to help the Department of Health understand how health and care staff, patients and carers use the NHS Constitution and how helpful they find it.

The handbook to the NHS Constitution for England is intended to be used by anyone who wishes to have more detail about the rights and pledges in the Constitution. It will be of particular use to organisations that support and advise patients (their carers and families) and staff.

The public health supplement to the NHS Constitution for England explains how the Constitution applies to public health services and interventions and to the work of Public Health England and local authorities.
