Quality of Health Principles
The Quality of Health Principles were written by people with learning disabilities and autism in partnership with people with physical disabilities and sensory impairments, older people and people with mental health difficulties.
The principles were facilitated by Changing Our Lives
, a rights based organisation that works in co-production with people with disabilities.
The principles reflect what disabled people consider to be a good quality patient experience in areas including accessible communication and information, choice, admission and discharge, staying in hospital, appointments, treatment, the way health professionals work with people, accessible environment, privacy, dignity, respect, medication and complaints. These principles are used as a measure for Quality of Health Reviews, led by Quality Checkers.
