It is with great sadness that we were informed that Dame Fiona Caldicott sadly passed away today. We have worked alongside her for many years and have tremendous respect for her work in developing the framework of the Caldicott principles which help protect patient confidentiality whilst sharing appropriately.
As the National Data Guardian she provided leadership in influencing government and organisations to follow the principles of transparency, proportionality and necessity of good information sharing.
She will be greatly missed.
