Important - All NHS services are under extreme pressure, and it is necessary for the clinical team to prioritise patients based on the most urgent medical need. When patients contact us with health issues, all calls and online consultations are triaged by a clinician, the clinical team offer a same day response where medically necessary. We aim to review all medical enquiries within 48 hours (two working days) and provide an appointment within a timeframe that is determined based on medical need, this could be same day, within two weeks, or for routine health matters a future date. Please consider visiting your local pharmacy for minor ailments, a walk-in centre or a Minor Injury Unit for items that do not require A&E, or call 111 for general advice and guidance about the best place to go for your medical needs. Thank you.

THE NHS CONSTITUTION

This constitution establishes the principles and values of the NHS in England, and 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.

PRINCIPLES THAT GUIDE THE NHS

1. The NHS provides a comprehensive service, available to all irrespective of gender, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion, belief, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity or marital or civil partnership status.

2. Access to NHS Services is based on clinical need, not an individual’s ability to pay. NHS services are free of charge, except in limited circumstances sanctioned by Parliament.

3. The NHS aspires to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism – in the provision of high quality care that is safe, effective and focused on patient experience.

4. The NHS aspires to put patients at the heart of everything it does. It should support individuals to promote and manage their own health

5. The NHS works across organisational boundaries and in partnership with other organisations in the interest of patients, local communities and the wider population.
