The Duty of Candour

The Duty of Candour is a statutory (legal) duty to be open and honest with patients (or ‘service users’), or their families, when something goes wrong that appears to have caused or could lead to significant harm in the future. It applies to all health and social care organisations registered with the regulator, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England. This leaflet explains what to expect if such an incident occurs and what to do if you think duty of candour has not been complied with.
