Information Governance: Implementing the Government Response to Caldicott 2

Venue: Colmore Gate Conference Centre
Bull Street Entrance
Colmore Gate
B3 2QD

Date: 8 Jul 2014

Synopsis: “For Caldicott 2 to be truly effective we have to engender and support cultural change, and embed it permanently in our organisations." Christopher Fincken, Chair UK Council of Caldicott Guardians 2014


The Government published “Information: to share or not to share” in response to the Caldicott Review on the 12th September 2013. The response states that “the government accepts all the recommendations of the Caldicott report and highlights that while information sharing is essential to provide good care for everyone, there are rules that must be followed." 

Health and Social Care organisations should now be putting the recommendations into practice. This conference provides a practical guide to implementing Caldicott2 in line with the recommendations from the Independent Information Governance Oversight Panel and the recommendations within the government response in your organisation.

“There is clearly an urgent and ongoing need for education and training in this area for staff, and also for patients and service users. Given the imperative to meet the needs of an ageing population, particularly at the boundary between health and social care, it is crucial that systems for principled sharing of information are well understood.” Dame Fiona Caldicott Chair The Caldicott2 Information Governance Review
