Subject: Duty of Candour Informal Meeting

Hi [Name]

I'm Michelle Jamieson, and you may have heard from me before. I am a PhD intern currently working with the Scottish Government until mid-January on the evaluation of health organisations' 2018/19 Duty of Candour annual reports. I am keen for this research to include the voices of those actively working within NHS Scotland that have implemented this and to hear what they think of the Duty of Candour procedure and legislation. 

Would yourself as [NHS Board] DoC Lead, or one of your colleagues, be available for an informal meeting to talk about thoughts/feelings around Duty of Candour? I am flexible regarding days and times, and available for meeting immediately. If you have any questions, thoughts, or concerns please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

I look forward to hearing from you, Michelle
