LMC and National Guidance on Caldicott Guardians within practices
Individual general medical and dental practices, pharmacists and opticians do not need to appoint a Caldicott Guardian, but do need to have an Information Governance lead (sometimes referred to as a Caldicott lead) who, if they are not a clinician, will need support from a clinically qualified individual. Primary Care Trusts should ensure that within every practice there is an Information Governance lead and provide support and guidance as required.
