All Health and Social Care services in Scotland have a duty of candour. This is a legal requirement which means that when things go wrong and mistakes happen, the people affected understand what has happened, receive an apology, and that organisations learn how to improve for the future. An important part of this duty is that we provide an annual report about the duty of candour in our services.
This short report describes how our care service has operated the duty of candour during the time between 1 April 2021 – 31 March 2022. We hope you find this report useful.
