The “duty of care” refers to the obligations placed on people to act towards others in a certain way, following specific standards. The term is sometimes used to cover both legal and professional duties that health care practitioners may have towards others, but there are distinctions between the two.
All health and social care workers need to understand their duty of care within their work environments.
