Caldicott Guardian Training

Our 1 day CPD accredited course is one of only three training providers recognised by the UK Caldicott Guardian Council ( as meeting the requirements of the Caldicott Guardian role.

The Caldicott Guardian is an essential role in any health care, social care, Local Authority or NHS Partner. All NHS organisations and local authorities providing social services must have a Caldicott Guardian. A Caldicott Guardian is a senior person responsible for protecting the confidentiality of patient and service-user information, making sure it is used properly and enabling appropriate information-sharing. Our training meets the requirements within the Data Security and Protection Toolkit and aligns with the UK Caldicott Guardian Council’s manual.

This course is for all those who require refresher or up-to-date training, in the Caldicott Guardian role, either as a Caldicott Guardian, a deputy or an information governance professional working in support of the Caldicott Guardian.

Our Director Sandra is an experienced and active national Caldicott Guardian and the Stay Compliant team have extensive and practical expertise which we bring to our CPD accredited courses.

It is an interactive day with a number of case studies to help delegates understand what they should consider when making Caldicott decisions in order to provide confidence in this role. It is a practical, interactive course with detailed handouts to act as an aide memoire when you return to your organisation.

We cover a range of themes including:

  • Understanding the Caldicott Guardian role and to provide advice and guidance on fulfilling that role
  • How to comply with the 7 Caldicott Principles
  • Know what to consider before sharing information
  • The Data Security & Protection (DSP) Toolkit role for Caldicott Guardians
  • Enhancing your confidence in making Caldicott decisions
  • Access to Medical Records considerations
  • Learning from case studies of breaches by NHS and Social Care organisations
  • Checklists for Caldicott Guardians

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.

Very interesting and informative – thank you! (June 2019)

Really useful and great to have people participating from a range of different organisations and perspectives (April 2019) 

I genuinely really enjoyed this course, I didn’t think I would!  Just thought it would be necessary to do but it made real sense and I felt involved and interested throughout (April 2019)
