Caldicott Guardians

18/03/2021

There are thousands of Caldicott Guardians in health & social care organisations across the UK. They share a common function, which is to make wise decisions about the use of people’s information. They balance the need to protect people’s confidentiality with the need to protect their welfare by ensuring that information is safely communicated among the various professional teams caring for an individual, sometimes across organisational boundaries.

The Caldicott Guardian for Adult Social Care is Janet Kerr Head of Adult Safeguarding & Practice Development. Janet can be contacted at janet.kerr@sheffield.gov.uk or by phone on:07580 536217.
