Patient choice

Patient choice is at the heart of the NHS. There are a range of choices that patients can expect to be offered in the NHS services they use.

Published by the Department of Health, the NHS Choice Framework sets out the main types of choices that should be available to NHS patients. Some of these choices are legal rights, while some are subject to specific exceptions.

We are committed to promoting patient choice. To learn more, see the NHS Choice Framework.
