dc.description.abstractImpelled by his own unsatisfactory hospital experiences, a British Member of Parliament, Patrick McNair-Wilson, has drafted a patient's charter which he hopes to introduce as a Private Member's bill. The charter spells out basic patients' rights that include a reasonable explanation of proposed treatments, weekly oral or written progress reports, full disclosure if requested by the patient, and compensation for in-hospital injuries. Other provisions address better communication between general practitioners and hospital staff and among hospital departments, improved claims procedures, and the introduction of a scheme to handle patient complaints.
