The Charter of Patient Rights and Responsibilities (the ‘charter’) summarises what you are entitled to when you use NHS services and receive NHS care in Scotland, and what you can do if you feel that your rights have not been respected. We have produced an easy read version of this charter at https://www.gov.scot/publications/charter-patient-rights-responsibilities-easy-read/.
