Caldicott Guardian Statement

Caldicott Guardians are senior people within an organisation who protect the confidentiality of people’s information by considering the ethical and legal aspects of data sharing. They play a vital role in ensuring that health and social care data is used responsibly to support the delivery of better care through ensuring that the 6 principles, identified by the Caldicott Committee in relation to handling sensitive data for patients and people receiving social care support, are upheld. Originally these roles applied to the NHS and Local Authorities only.

In line with the public consultation entitled “Caldicott Principles: a consultation about revising, expanding and upholding the principles.” in 2020 and the ensuing guidance, Bethphage has reviewed the need to have a Caldicott Guardian within the Organisation. The role will ensure best practice is followed when handling sensitive data relating to the people we support.

The executive management team has identified that the role will sit within the Quality Team and Clare Shaw will be the named person.

Bethphage takes the management of data very seriously, ensuring that we manage all sensitive data carefully and within the requirements of the General Data Processing Regulations (GDPR). The Caldicott Guardian will work with the data roles we already have within the organisation:

  • Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) – CEO
  • Information governance (IG) leads – Head of Finance and IT, Head of Operations, Head of HR

If you have queries/concerns relating to the storage or sharing of personal information please do not hesitate to contact Clare on 07738 540140 or caldicott@bethphage.co.uk.
