We may take photographs or audio-visual recordings of you in a clinical context in connection with your treatment or healthcare. We will only collect information about your health, or other sensitive information about you (including taking photographs or audio-visual recordings of you), if we have your consent to do so or if it is otherwise permitted by law.

Where practicable, we will collect your personal information directly from you, but we may sometimes also collect information from third parties, including family members, referring clinicians and other healthcare professionals and service provider organisations. We will only collect health information from a third party if you have consented or where we are otherwise permitted by law to do so, such as in a medical emergency. We may also operate video surveillance systems at our facilities for the purposes of maintaining the safety of our staff, patients and other persons visiting our premises.

In addition to the above, we may also use your information in de-identified form for the purposes of research and product development activities. For example, this may include the development of new diagnostic tools and products, treatment methods and pathways. As we only use de-identified information for these purposes, you will not be identified as part of any of these activities.
Occasionally we may receive requests from external researchers who wish to conduct research using information in identifiable form. Any such researchers must follow strict ethical guidelines, including by asking for your consent to be part of their research. We will not share any identifiable information for research purposes without your consent.
We may need to disclose your information for one or more of the purposes described above. For example, depending on the circumstances, we may need to disclose your information to:
