Choice Policy

The Choice policy is a guide to the choices that patients have and can make about their personal healthcare and treatment.

It is firmly written into the NHS constitution that ‘patients will be at the heart of everything the NHS does.

Thus every patient has a right to make informed choices about their healthcare and be offered the opportunity to compare and make choice decisions based on their individual needs.

NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group (DCCG) has an ambition to provide as much choice as possible for patients when they need to access NHS services.
