This Conference is now Closed

Follow the conference on X #CaldicottPC

We are pleased to announce the National Caldicott Guardian in Primary Care Conference. 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 in information sharing and the role of the Caldicott Guardian 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.

“Even after 23 years since its inception, the Caldicott Principles and Caldicott Guardians (22,000 of them) were still considered valuable and useful today… the Caldicott Principles are an invaluable resource that can provide staff with a common sense approach. Playing an important part in embedding these principles into the work of their organisatons, Caldicott Guardians are often referred to as the conscience of their organisation. They have a deep understanding of how health and care data is different to other data, because in many cases they are clinicians and care providers themselves, and therefore are advocates for patients and service users.”
