Department for Health and Social Care calls for evidence in Duty of Candour Review

The Department for Health and Social Care has released an Open Call for Evidence as it begins its review into the Duty of Candour. The review, announced as part of the Government's response to the Hillsbrough disaster report on 6 December 2023 , will look at how the duty of candour is honoured across the health and social care sector, and how any failings are enforced.

"DHSC’s review is being conducted to understand to what extent the duty of candour is honoured, monitored and enforced. We will also consider to what extent the policy and its design are appropriate for the health and care system and have met their objectives. We are clear that limited or non-compliance with the duty cannot be justified. Our aim is to deliver recommendations for better meeting the policy objectives of the duty and which can be implemented at pace.”
