Equality assessment on establishment of NHS Constitution Right

The Department undertook an equality screening assessment in relation to a package of work to deliver this right.  The equality assessment was not published at the time, but is now being published to accompany the establishment of this NHS Constitution Right in the standing rules regulations.

The NHS Constitution includes a right for patients to expect local decisions on funding of other drugs and treatments to be made rationally following a proper consideration of the evidence. If the local NHS decides not to fund a drug or treatment you and your doctor feel would be right for you, they will explain that decision to you.
