CII is among a huge number of disabled activists and Disabled People’s Organisations calling for NHS England to respect our Human Rights
The full letter, published by Disability Rights UK, reads:
“The NHS is built on the principle that we are each equal in dignity and worth. It expresses our commitment to protect one another’s right to life and to health, no matter who we are.
We recognise that the NHS faces unprecedented pressures. We know that its staff will have to make difficult decisions about who gets treatment and care and who doesn’t. We understand that they will have to judge whether people will benefit and we know that people’s existing health will be taken into account.
