Legal update for Caldicott Guardians

  • DAC Beachcroft (Manchester) 3 Hardman Street Manchester M3 3HF (map)

The legal and ethical framework affecting Caldicott Guardians is rapidly evolving and increasingly complex. In particular, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take direct effect in the UK on 25 May 2018 and will be the most comprehensive overhaul of data protection law in this generation. The new regime for handling personal data has particular challenges for Caldicott Guardians with increased rights for individuals and enhanced fines for non-compliance.

We are offering a 1-day session which provides an update as to the legal, ethical and practical frameworks affecting Caldicott Guardians – including a detailed explanation as to what Caldicott Guardians must know about the impact of the GDPR. This session costs £350.00 + VAT and will take place on the following dates:

5th March 2018 — Manchester
10th April 2018 — Newcastle
11th April 2018 — London: Fetter Lane

Alternatively, we can provide a bespoke training course in-house or at one of our offices for a group size of your choosing and tailored to your organisation's needs, policies and procedures. This has the advantage of ensuring the wider team which supports the Caldicott Guardian understands the legal and governance framework and associated responsibilities. It can also incorporate organisation-specific issues and problem areas. This option offers more cost-effective training in comparison to individual attendance. Depending on requirements, half day courses for groups are available from £950 + VAT.
