Kick It (a subsidiary of Thrive Tribe) processes your information when you are referred to us (as a potential client) to check that you are eligible for our service and contact you regarding our programmes. We are your Local Smoking Cessation Service, commissioned by Kingston Upon Thames Borough Council. If you are enrolled in our service, we use your information to manage our interactions with you and record the care we provide. We use SMS, Email, Telephone and Post to contact and communicate with you.
We get your information from:
• Referral information via our various referral pathways (self-referral or from a healthcare /community professional).
• Ongoing personal data and health metrics is received from you.
• GP surgeries we work in collaboration with.
• During community events if you share data via our sign-up process.
If you have referred yourself into our service, we would be using your data on the basis that you have initially given us consent to do so, and from there that we are providing you with a healthcare service, which by itself gives us a basis for using your data. If you have been referred by a healthcare professional, we work on the understanding that they have discussed the initial referral with you and your agreement with it being made, and once it is received by us similarly, that we are providing you with a healthcare service.
The personal data we process includes your name, date of birth, NHS number (if provided), address, your GP’s name and address, email address and phone number and gender. We also use more sensitive data including your ethnicity, economic status, health data (physical and/or mental), and any disability you may have.
We ask for your consent to share (your details and health outcomes) with GP Surgeries, Pharmacies and Public Health. For service users opting to use electronic cigarettes, we will share your information with our supplier, Evapo. Your information will also be shared with London South Bank University for research purposes into the effectiveness of e-cigarettes for smoking cessation.
We keep your information under the NHS Records Management Code of Practice 2021. All telephone recordings will be stored for one year.
