    Duty of Care – Online Training Course – Level 1 - UKCSTF Aligned.

    Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's online Duty of Care training course for front-line healthcare and social care providers. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

    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.
