The principles and values of the NHS in England
NHS South Kent Coast Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has formally adopted the NHS Constitution. The CCG has a duty to promote the NHS Constitution in the exercise of its functions:
- act with a view to securing that health services are provided in a way which promotes the NHS Constitution, and
- promote awareness of the NHS Constitution among patients, staff and members of the public.
The Department of Health has published an updated NHS Constitution following a consultation that sought views on a number of proposed changes.
