Professional & Ethical codes of conduct have set a high standard of best practice and established a common standard amongst professional bodies.

All Providers whether in Healthcare or Adult Social Care setting have the same common duty of care towards people in their care and obliged to seek out best practice in care from all professions.

CQC Guidelines make specific reference that Providers must follow best practice, and therefore adopting “Professional & Ethical Duty of Candour” in effect can be seen as a requirement to comply with KLOEs.
