Our response to Professional Standards Authority report on duty of candour
Responding to the report 'Telling patients the truth when something goes wrong' by the Professional Standards Authority, NMC Director of Fitness to Practise Matthew McClelland, said:
"The duty of candour is at the heart of professionalism and patient safety. It's a key part of our standards and the cornerstone of our new approach to resolving complaints about nurses and midwives.
"Supporting better, safer care is what we do and today’s report acknowledges the significant work we've done to ensure that candour is at the centre of the way we regulate nurses and midwives. We'll continue to look at ways to support and promote the duty of candour in the future.“
