Policy Statement

The policy sets out the approach of this care service to meeting its statutory requirements to be open and transparent with its service users if it makes mistakes when providing care and treatment that result in their suffering moderate or serious harm. These are situations that must be notified to the Care Quality Commission under Regulation 18 of the Care Commission (Registration) Regulations (as amended in 2015) “Notification of Other Incidents” and trigger a formal requirement to exercise a duty of candour as defined in Regulation 20 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014.
