The Human Rights Act 2000 gives every citizen a clear statement of their rights and responsibilities. For public authorities - such as the NHS - the Act makes it a legal duty to respect and foster the rights of citizens as set out in the European Convention on Human Rights. This work has been written by nursing-related professionals. Intended to be of practical use for nurses in their day-to-day relationships with patients and clients, the guide explores the impact of The Human Rights Act on key areas such as health law and ethics, patient rights and non-discrimination. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of the nurse in safeguarding patients' rights and several case studies are included to illustrate issues raised by the Act.
