The Duty of Candour & its Impact on Employment in the NHS – Webcast

Martin Fodder and Katherine Apps look at Regulation 20 (“Duty of Candour”) of the Health and
Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2014. This regulation
is relevant to healthcare bodies and any person working within
the health professions since employment contracts may contain
provisions related to the duty of candour. Martin and Katherine also
discuss how the duty of candour will impact on employees’ protections under
whistleblowing legislation within ERA 1996. They also discuss the use of
injunctions to enforce obligations in employment contracts (Chhabra v
West London Mental Health NHS Trust
[2013] UKSC 80).

This webcast was recorded in April 2015 and was correct at the time of going to press. This is the first webcast in a short series in association with Bath Publishing which focus on employment issues in the health service.
