Personal Data Collection and Use
We collect and use your personal data to allow us to provide Services to meet your healthcare needs, and to customise and improve our Services to make your experience more secure and convenient (including improving the quality of our Services through the performance of quality reviews and similar activities). We only collect personal data about you that we consider reasonably necessary for achieving these purposes.

We, as a healthcare provider, are committed as far as possible to keep your personal data safe by:
