The NHS Constitution sets out what you can expect from the NHS as a patient and as a staff member. It is divided into your rights and pledges. Rights are what you are entitled to and are protected by law whereas pledges are not legally binding, however the NHS is committed to achieving them supported by management and regulatory systems.
