A legal 'Duty of Candour' in Healthcare - "Robbie's Law"
Petition Background (Preamble):
In other words, we are calling for the Government to create a law to make it a legal requirement to inform patients or their next of kin of errors or incidents in their healthcare which have or may cause harm.
We are calling this “Robbie’s Law” in honour of Robbie Powell and his parents Will & Diane. Robbie’s case and their courageous campaign over 19 years has come to symbolise the need for such a law.
