Information prescriptions : Department of Health - Health care

Posted Apr 09 2009 6:22pm
Information prescriptions : Department of Health - Health care: " The NHS Constitution, published in January 2009, makes the provision of patient information a right and is backed up by legislation for the first time:

‘The NHS commits to offer you easily accessible, reliable and relevant information to enable you to participate fully in your own healthcare decisions and to support you in making choices’.

‘You have a right to make choices about your NHS care and to information to support these choices. The options available to you will develop over time and depend on your individual needs.’"

I wish the Indian government would also make it compulsory for health insurance companies and doctors to prescribe information ! This would be a very cost-effective intervention, which would change the way patients in India are treated !
