This hub brings together BIHR's work to put human rights at the heart of health and care. We have been working for over 15 years to support organisations to use human rights to improve health and care services. We have worked across the sectors, with NHS Trusts, local authorities, regulators, advocacy and support groups and other voluntary sector organisations. Our work shows that human rights can be a useful, practical tool for those working in health and care to improve services and outcomes for people.
Whether you work in service design or delivery, as an advocate or support worker, regulator, if you use services yourself or care for someone who does, there's something on the hub for you. The information collated here aims to empower you to know about human rights and use them in your daily work/life to ensure services are treating people with dignity and respect
