Edexcel Level 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care Unit Two: Equality, Diversity & Rights in Health & Social Care Task 1 In this assignment I am going to explain the different rights of service users in health and social care environments. We all have basic human rights no matter what service we are using and everybody has a responsibility to respect other people’s human rights as stated in The Human Rights Act 2000.
