A “PATIENT’S Champion” has been appointed for Warrington – to promote the values, principles, rights and pledges within the NHS Constitution.
The constitution, launched in January last year, is the first of its kind in the world, and brings together in one place what staff, patients and the public can expect from the NHS and what the NHS expect of them.
NHS Warrington has appointed their public and stakeholder engagement officer, Paul Steele, as their new constitution champion.
His role is to ensure patients, their representatives, carers and the public are aware of their rights, responsibilities, and what services are available to provide support and advise.
Mr Steele said: “Being the local champion for the NHS constitution means I can answer any questions the public and staff may have about the constitution and what it means for people in Warrington.
“The NHS constitution is aimed at making the NHS work more effectively and empower people to both understand their health and how to stay healthy and fit.
“I talk to lots of different groups of people in my job and as part of my role with the public I will be talking to people about the constitution and what it aims to deliver.”
If patients or the public have specific questions, concerns or need information about local health services in Warrington they should contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service on 0800 389 6973.
