This Conference is now Closed

Healthcare Conferences UK in association with Christopher Fincken, Independent Member UK Caldicott Guardian Council, (Chairman 2012-2017) are pleased to announce the Caldicott Principles, Information Sharing and GDPR Conference which will take place in York. 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.

“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.” 

Information Commissioners Office
