This consultation ended 13 December 2022.
Summary of outcome
Due to the large number of responses received has meant we have had to delay publishing the results. We are currently analysing the responses before finalising the report. We expect to publish the report by the 1st April 2023.
We want your views on how to introduce the necessary changes for implementing the Duty of Candour.
The Duty of Candour means NHS organisations have a duty to be open and honest with people they are caring for if things go wrong and harm has occurred.
We are consulting on:
- how we introduce the Duty of Candour to NHS organisations through new statutory guidance and statutory regulations
- amending the 'Putting Things Right' regulations and guidance to enable the Duty of Candour to integrate with them
