Draft guidance on NHS patients who wish to pay for additional private care

A consultation

04 November 2008
The purpose of this briefing is to provide a short introduction to the 'draft guidance on NHS patients who wish to pay for additional private care' that was issued on 4 November and was then the subject of a further consultation. This draft guidance constitutes part of the Government's response to the review and the consultation on this closed on 27 January 2009.

This important consultation presents the opportunity for the nursing profession to actively engage and participate in how the Government's change of position on 'top up' payments can be implemented in a practical and effective manner.
