Joint response to the CQC consultation on fit and proper person requirement and Duty of Candour


12 / 09 / 2014

We have submitted a joint response with the NHS Confederation to the Care Quality Commission's (CQC) consultation on the guidance for NHS bodies on the fit and proper person requirement (FPPR) for directors and the duty of candour.

Our response has been informed by engagement with employers and our members. We discussed the issues with a group of HR Directors from across our HR networks and hosted an information webinar on 2 September 2014, where Carole Long of CQC provided an overview of FPPR. The NHS Confederation Hospitals Forum Steering Group had the opportunity to feed in their views on both FPPR and duty of candour directly to CQC representatives on 4 September 2014.

You can read the full response by opening or downloading the document to the left of this page.

We will continue to work with the CQC to provide clarity on what the requirements will mean for NHS organisations in practice and will provide updates on our website and in the workforce bulletin as soon as they are available.
