Each NHS organisation must have a Caldicott Guardian in place who safeguards the use of personal confidential data and authorises the use of personal confidential data within the CCG.
A Caldicott Guardian is an expert on confidentiality issues and access to patient and service user records. The post is held by a senior person, who is responsible for protecting the confidentiality of patient and service user information and enabling appropriate information sharing.
The South Warwickshire CCG Caldicott Guardian is Dr Sukhi Dhesi. Dr Dhesi can offer advice and information on queries about safeguarding the confidentiality of patient or service user information.
If you need to share patient information for purposes other than direct care and treatment of the patient you must obtain approval from the Caldicott Guardian by completing the Caldicott Approval Form.
