National Voices, the health and care charity coalition, welcomes the announcements on the Duty of Candour.
Jeremy Taylor, Chief Executive of National Voices, said:
“National Voices welcomes the announcements on the Duty of Candour. Patients and families have a right to know when things go wrong and now this will be backed up by law. We particularly welcome the government's intention to lower the 'threshold' so that the duty will apply in cases any of 'significant harm' and not only in the most serious incidents.”
