The Patients Association
The Patients Association is an independent patient charity campaigning for improvements in health and social care for patients.
Uniquely for an organisation with a remit covering all health and care issues, the Patients Association works with patients directly: they are its members and supporters, and also the people who benefit from the Association’s help and advice services. Through its helpline the Patients Association supports thousands of people each year with their concerns and queries about the health and social care system.
The Patients Association also speaks to government, the NHS and other stakeholders about patients' priorities and concerns, to ensure the patient voice is heard and acted upon.
