How We Collect Personal Data
We and our service providers collect Personal Data in a variety of ways, including:

● Request information in connection with the Services, or otherwise communicate with us;
● Make use of our Services or assist in facilitating those services; or
● Create a Continuum Health account on our Website or Apps.
Use of Personal Data
We and our service providers use Personal Data for the following purposes: To provide the Services to users
We use your information to create your account, match you to a relevant clinic, provide you with reports from the clinic and generally to communicate with you. We use your information to produce notes summarizing your health condition to provide this to the relevant clinic.
To provide you with related support relating to our Websites or Apps.
To send administrative information to you or to respond to queries submitted via our Websites or Apps.If you are receiving care from a health or care organisation, that organisation may share your NHS number with other organisations providing your care. This is so that the health and care organisations are using the same number to identify you whilst providing your care. By using the same number the health and care organisations can work together more closely to improve your care and support.Your NHS number is accessed through an NHS Digital service called the Personal Demographic Service (PDS). A health or care organisation sends basic information such as your name, address and date of birth to the PDS in order to find your NHS Number. We will share information only to provide health and care professionals directly involved in your care access to the most up-to-date information about you. Access to information is strictly controlled, based on the role of the professional, and where the user has a direct care relationship with you.The use of joined up information across health and social care brings many benefits. One specific example where this will be the case is the discharge of patients into social care. Delays in discharge (commonly known as bed blocking) can occur because details of social care involvement are not readily available to the staff on the hospital ward. The hospital does not know who to contact to discuss the ongoing care of a patient. The linking of social care and health information via the NHS Number will help hospital staff quickly identify if social care support is already in place and who the most appropriate contact is. Ongoing care can be planned earlier in the process, because hospital staff will know who to talk to.You have the right to object to the processing of your NHS Number in this way. This will not stop you from receiving care, but will result in the benefits outlined above not being realised. To help you decide, we will discuss with you how this may affect our ability to provide you with care, and any other options that you have. If you wish to opt-out from the use of your NHS Number in this way, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

NHS Digital is the controller for any personal information you provided to NHS Digital to get an NHS login account and verify your identity, and uses that personal information solely for that single purpose.
