Duty of Candour

The Victorian Government has signalled its intention to introduce legislation enforcing a Statutory Duty of Candour within the health system and particularly the acute sector.

You can access the Working Party Discussion Paper:

There is an opportunity to respond to the paper. For those who may not have the time and resources to respond, Health Issues Centre is conducting a consultation with Consumers and Consumer Groups on Wednesday 29 November at 3:30pm. We will then produce a submission on behalf of those who attend that meeting.
