Duty of Candour
The statutory duty of candour is very specific and only applies where there has been an unexpected or unintended consequence that causes harm or death to an individual (as defined by the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc. and Care) (Scotland) Act 2016 ) that is not as a consequence of the condition for which they are being treated. It is also set out by the GMC at The Professional Duty of Candour. The Scottish Government website also provides Duty of Candour FAQs.
Duty of Candour may be relevant when an adult at risk has been harmed.
