When individuals access the health and social care services they must have their rights supported. These human rights in the UK form part of the Human Rights Act 1998 and are reinforced by the principles of dignity, equality and respect. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) protects equality across 9 grounds such as – age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief, pregnancy and maternity, marriage and civil partnership, sexual orientation and gender reassignment. Individuals have “A Right to life” and “Prohibition of discrimination”. This means that individuals should have rights to make their own decision and also be supported with what they decide. “Prohibition of discrimination” means that any individual is free from using different services without getting judged on their race, religion, sex, colour and background which again is a Right to life and freedom from abuse and discrimination. The Care Act 2014 also believe that Adults should receive support that’s personal to them, chosen by them and has their consent.
