Duty of Candour
Duty of Candour is a legal requirement, part of the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc and Care) (Scotland) Act 2016, to ensure that if something goes wrong in the services all relevant information is shared with the people affected. They are offered an explanation, an apology and assurance that staff will learn from and share this learning if something goes wrong.
