Duty of candour responsibilities and process

We have held team meetings to discuss our duty of candour responsibilities should an unintended or unexpected incident occur. The team is aware of and understands the practice adverse incident (duty of candour) protocol, which describes what to do when something goes wrong. The protocol identifies the practice contact, who should be notified of all incidents and near misses (along with NHSG Optometry Leads) and will conduct an investigation, if necessary.
