Jeremy Hyam and Kate Beattie succeed for AvMA in duty of candour challenge

Jeremy Hyam and Kate Beattie acted for AvMA in a challenge to the duty of candour regulations which create a “two tier” system for different health organisations.

A statutory duty of candour was introduced in 2014 for NHS organisations.  In April 2015, regulations came into force which created a different duty of candour for providers of NHS primary care (GPs, dentists and pharmacists) and for private healthcare. 

Following AvMA’s challenge, the Secretary of State for Health has agreed to consult further on changes to the thresholds for the duty of candour as laid down in the Regulations.  The consultation is to be held this summer.
