Duty of Candour

All health and social care services in Scotland have a duty of candour. This is a legal requirement which means that when unintended or unexpected events happen that result in death or harm as defined in the Act, the people affected understand what has happened, receive an apology, and are informed by the organisation what has been learned and how improvements for the future will be made.
