We are pleased to announce the National Caldicott Guardian in General Practice Summit. The conference will be chaired and has been produced in association with Christopher Fincken, past Chair and member of, The UK Caldicott Guardian Council, and will include national developments and local case studies of how the role is developing in primary care. The conference aims to bring current and aspiring Caldicott Guardians together to understand current issues and the national context, and to debate and discuss key issues and areas they are facing in practice.

“In recent years the need for guardians has become ever more important. Data about people’s experiences of health and social care has huge potential for improving services and discovering more effective treatments and ways to provide care. Those benefits will not be realised without public trust. The Caldicott Guardians are a powerful force for good by making sure that organisations behave in a way that is trustworthy.” Dame Fiona Caldicott, January 2017

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with fellow Caldicott Guardians and those working to deliver the Caldicott Role
  • Learn from established practice in the delivery of Caldicott Principles in Primary Care
  • Understand and reflect on what makes an Excellent Caldicott Guardian in General Practice    
  • Update your knowledge on national developments
  • Understand how to improve awareness of your role and engage the practice team  
  • Develop your skills in Caldicott Decision Making and using the manual to improve consistency in practice
  • Identify key strategies for dealing with difficult issues, leading when things go wrong, and managing ethical decision making
  • Reflect on the Caldicott Role in Safeguarding and working with police
  • Understand the legal issues around GDPR, caldicott decision making including the duty of candour
  • Self assess and reflect on your own practice
  • Gain cpd accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence

 

The conference will also discuss the implications of the GDPR for General Practice

“The GDPR, which was approved in 2016 and comes into force on 25th May 2018 will be directly applicable as law in the UK. It will replace the Directive that is the basis for the UK Data Protection Act 1998, which will be repealed or amended. It is expected that the provisions of the GDPR will remain in force post-Brexit, and for the foreseeable future… Organisations must be able to demonstrate compliance.” Information Governance Alliance 2017

Delegates will be encouraged to network with their regional network Caldicott lead
