The main point of security weakness will be your password for the app . Newcastle Hospitals takes no responsibility for security breaches due to account access via your selected password. As the creator of the images you are the data controller which means that you have responsibility for the data. All of the images are stored in the Microsoft Azure Cloud which has full authorisation for storage of NHS data.

This means that your image data will be transferred to your hospital record so that the medical staff can complete their assessment of your skin problem.
