According to the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia it is specified that "in Slovenia everyone is guaranteed equal rights and fundamental freedoms, irrespective of national origin, race, sex, language, religion, political or other beliefs, financial status, birth, education, social position, disability or any other personal circumstance (Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia). This means that human rights and fundamental freedoms in Slovenia are protected under the highest legal act in the country in which it is necessary to respect it. A similar meaning as the human rights and fundamental freedoms, are also the patient's rights under the law governing the legal protection of patients and their rights, when they find themselves in the role of patient.
This thesis presents a fundation on the matter of protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the area of health. In which we also have a purpuse which, is based on the protection of patient's rights and the efficiency of the health service. For the thesis to reach its purpuse, the descriptive method is used to write the theoretical part of the thesis. In continuation of the thesis I used the method of analysis which helped me understand the law where patient's rights are mentioned. Lasty I used the method of a questionnaire, which was directed directly to the users of the health service.
