- strengthening the voice of citizens across health and social services,
- placing a duty of candour on NHS organisations, and
- strengthening the governance arrangements for NHS Trusts;
- any potential barriers to the implementation of the provisions and whether the Bill takes account of them;
- whether there are any unintended consequences arising from the Bill;
