Hunt drops clause that puts NHS patients first – Telegraph

Robert Francis, the inquiry chairman, said that one of his top priorities was for the NHS constitution to be rewritten, making it explicit that “patients are put first” and “everything done by the NHS should be informed by this ethos”.

He recommended that the Health Secretary also consider stipulating that NHS staff “put patients before themselves”.

But the redrafted constitution, quietly released last week, simply states that the health service will “aspire” to put patients first.
