Research shows that treatments are more effective if patients choose, understand and control their care. This is why giving people more choice is a key priority of the NHS.
The Choice Framework sets out your legal right to choice about your NHS treatment and care, which usually involves selecting a GP, hospital and making informed decisions about your treatment. It is important to remember that you have a right to be involved in important decisions about your treatment and care.
NHS doctors have a duty to inform you about your available options and will always advise you as to what they think is the best option, but, ultimately, it is you, the patient, that must decide what is right for you.
