Duty of Candour. Are you prepared?

Duty of Candour will apply to care providers regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) from 1st April 2015. This is subject to final approval from Parliament and follows the same legislation which came into effect for healthcare providers in November 2014.

The new legislation could have serious implications for every healthcare and care provider, so we have created a Duty of Candour guide to help policyholders in the care sector understand how to meet this duty while at the same time minimising the risks that might present themselves.
