Progress on strengthening professional regulation’s approach to candour and error reporting

November 2014 advice to the Secretary of State for Health.

In March 2014 the Secretary of State for Health asked the Authority to work with the nine regulators we oversee to support progress in introducing a consistent approach to a professional duty of candour as outlined in Hard Truths (the Government’s response to the Francis Report), and to advise the Department of Health on that progress with a final report by the end of 2014.

The resulting report considers the regulators' progress up until November 2014 and their plans for further relevant work in 2015 and 2016. We will review the regulators’ progress against their plans through our 2015/16 review of the regulators’ performance.
