NHS Constitution

NHS Constitution

There are Seven key principles that guide the NHS in all it does. They are underpinned by core NHS values which have been derived from extensive discussions with staff, patients and the public. These values are:

1) The NHS provides a comprehensive service, available to all

2) Access to NHS services is based on clinical need, not an individual’s ability to pay

3) The NHS aspires to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism

4) The patient will be at the heart of everything the NHS does

5) The NHS works across organisational boundaries

6) The NHS is committed to providing best value for taxpayers’ money

7) The NHS is accountable to the public, communities and patients that it serves
