There are a range of choices that patients should expect to be offered in the NHS services they use. The NHS Choice Framework, published by the Department of Health, sets out the nine main types of choices that should be available. Some of these choices are legal rights, while some are subject to specific exceptions.
For more information on choice please read the leaflet or visit NHS Choices.
You can also contact NHS England at email@example.com for guidance, advice or information, or if you have any concerns about how well choice is working for patients.
