Proposals to strengthen the NHS Constitution
The UK NHS has published Proposals to strengthen the NHS Constitution. Comments and public consultation on the 60-page document are open is 28 January 2013.
One of the key proposed changes makes it clearer that patients, their families and carers should be fully involved in all discussions and decisions about their end-of-life care and treatment. Responses to the consultation will feed into a revised version of the NHS Constitution, which will be published by April 2013.
