Duty of Candour, Patient Complaints, Concerns and Compliments

The Duty of Candour is a legal duty for all health and social care organisations to inform and apologise to patients if there have been mistakes in their care and treatment that have led to significant harm.

Duty of Candour aims to help patients receive accurate and truthful information from health providers.

To meet the requirements of the regulation the Trust has to:

  • Make sure it has an open and honest culture across and at all levels within its organisation.
  • Tell patients in a timely manner when particular incidents have occurred.
  • Provide in writing a truthful account of the incident and an explanation about the enquiries and investigations that organisation will carry out.
  • Offer an apology in writing.
  • Provide reasonable support to the person after the incident.
