Patient choice

 

Since 1 April 2008, you have the right to choose the hospital you want to be treated at.

 

A dramatic expansion of patient choice in the NHS got under way in April 2008.

 

Surveys have consistently shown that patients want choice. The 2005 British Social Attitudes survey revealed that 65% of patients said they wanted choice of treatment, 63% wanted a choice of hospital and 53% welcomed a choice of appointment time.

 

The introduction of free choice means that patients referred to see a specialist can choose where they will be treated. They can choose from any hospital that meets NHS standards.

 

Under free choice, if you and your GP decide that you need to see a specialist, you'll be able to choose the hospital that best suits your needs. 

 

Should you have any questions, please get in touch with us.  We'll be happy to help.
