We are pleased to announce the Caldicott Principles, Information Sharing and GDPR virtual conference. Following the success of our previous Caldicott Guardian National Conferences, and feedback from our regular Caldicott Training Masterclasses, this conference will focus on developing your role applying the Caldicott Principles to improve communication and information sharing whilst ensuring patient confidentiality under GDPR.

Through national updates, expert led extended interactive sessions and practical case studies the conference will support you to improve information sharing practice in your service.

“Its not only about what you can do legally but what you should be doing morally and ethically. Many IG experts do not understand that there is an ethical side to this... sometimes its right to breach the law if it’s the right thing to do” 

Dawn Monaghan Head of Data Sharing and Privacy NHS England

“The health sector handles some of the most sensitive personal data, and patients have the right to expect that information will be looked after.”
