The NHS Constitution establishes the principles and values of the NHS in England.
It sets out rights to which patients, public and staff are entitled, and pledges which the NHS is committed to achieve, together with responsibilities which the public, patients and staff owe to one another to ensure that the NHS operates fairly and effectively.
All NHS bodies and private and third sector providers supplying NHS services are required by law to take account of this constitution in their decisions and actions.
Constitution is the set of written rules and agreements governing North Staffordshire CCG, describing how it will run, the rules for membership and election, geographical boundaries and structure.
Please note the latest North Staffordshire CCG Constitution is currently under review and awaiting approval from NHS England.
