The NHS Mandate

29 October 2014
Briefing provides an explanation of what the Mandate is, a summary of the objectives contained in it, and the RCN's position.
The RCN welcomed the publication of the Mandate, which enshrines the founding NHS principles of being comprehensive, universal and free at the point of delivery. We believe that it is right for the NHS to be ambitious, and to aspire to extend and improve lives throughout England.
