Care.data communications will not be issued until Dame Fiona Caldicott the National Data Guardian, has advised the Secretary of State that she is satisfied with the safeguards NHS England has put in place.

The decision to send patient communications will be made with each pathfinder area based on their readiness to proceed. No timeframes are being imposed by the programme.
