This article explores the tension between appeals to human rights and how to care for people within the NHS which provides universal access, free at the point of entry, and trying to do the greatest good for the greatest number. It explains where rights come from and what they do. Recent legal challenges concerning human rights and demands for continued treatment are discussed and the relationship between nursing and human rights explored. We explain that if nurses focus upon moral rights, such as dignity, and enhancing solidarity with fellow human beings it is highly likely that they will be complying with human rights law.
