CQC Glossary of terms used in the guidance for providers and managers

The basic rights and freedoms contained in the European Convention on Human Rights. The Human Rights Act 1988 means that most of the convention rights are available to everyone in the United Kingdom, regardless of their age, nationality, race, ethnicity, gender or religion and beliefs. It is an offence for a public body to breach any person's human rights, and under the Health and Social Care Act 2008, 'public body' includes any provider that supplies accommodation together with nursing or personal care on behalf of a local authority.
