For example, do you have a dedicated Caldicott Guardian or is it tagged onto another person's role. Do those of you who work in a Local Authority have it included with a Data Protection/ Information Governance role and does anyone have a roles/ responsibilities description or work programme for the Guardian that they're willing to share.
