Duty of Candor

As a provider of health care in Scotland, our duty of candour responsibilities require us to publish an annual report of unintended or unexpected incidents that have occurred during the year as soon as practicable after the end of the financial year. We must publish a report even if we have no incidents to include.

The protocol identifies the practice contact, who should be notified of all incidents and near misses and will conduct an investigation, if necessary.
