The law

The GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 requires you to provide a compliant environment to handling personal data.

Caldicott principle 6, also requires you to be compliant with the law.

However, as a Caldicott Guardian, compliance with additional legislation such as the Common Law duty of Confidentiality, safeguarding, human rights and lawful sharing with the police needs to be applied alongside data protection legislation.
