Caldicott Guardian

A Caldicott Guardian is a senior person responsible for protecting the confidentiality of people’s health and care information and making sure it is used properly. All NHS organisations and local authorities who provide social care must have one.

They are guided by the Caldicott Principles which originated from the 1997 department of health review of Patient Identifiable Information and its use which was led by Dame Fiona Caldicott. These were updated in a further Information Governance review in 2013.

The Caldicott guardian at Nunwell Surgery is Dr Louise Mottram.  If you need to contact her please use [email protected] and put FAO Caldicott Guardian in the subject line.
