We are pleased to announce the 11th National Annual Caldicott Guardians Conference which will take place as an in person event with the option of virtual attendance.

There are now more than 22,000 Caldicott Guardians in place in health, social care and beyond. Following the success of our previous Caldicott Guardian Events, and feedback from our regular Caldicott Training Masterclasses, this 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.  

“I am keenly aware of the vital part that Caldicott Guardians play in ensuring people’s data is used responsibly to support the delivery of better care. Having more staff in the system to advise on the ethical and legal aspects of data sharing benefits us all.”
