A Human Rights Approach to Health Care

22 March 2010

Some of the fundamental principles of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights - such as the right to life and to be treated with respect - clearly link with the fundamental principles on which the NHS is built.

Delegates from more than 30 North West NHS bodies attended a one-day workshop in early March to tackle this important issue -  Human Rights in Health Care.

Delegates focussed on human rights in healthcare settings, current legislation and ways in which their own organisations can integrate these aspects of equality and human rights into their own training and development plans.

Below is a short film (3.5 minutes) demonstrating how Mersey Care NHS Trust approaches this issue.
