Duty Of Candour

The duty of candour requires all health and adult social care providers registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to be open with people when things go wrong. The regulations impose a specific and detailed duty on all provides where any harm to a person who used their service from their care or treatment is above a certain threshold. The duty of candour is a legal requirement and CQC will be able to take enforcement action when it finds breaches.
