How we get the personal information and why we have it
Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:
We only collect data that is relevant and necessary for your treatment/management in order for us to deliver the best possible service. We process the data because it is in our legitimate interests as expert clinicians to do so.
We also receive personal information indirectly, from the following sources in the following scenarios:
- Consultants and their medical secretaries to process your enquiry or appointment booking.
- NHS providers and GP practices who are referring you to our services.
- Private medical insurers.
- Solicitors (personal injury claims for treatment purposes or requests for expert opinions).
We do not collect any information which does not have a specific purpose or role to play in your care.
How we use this information
Information collected by Brain & Mind Ltd may be used for the following reasons:
- We use your contact information to get in touch with you to organise appointments and treatment recommendations as well as sorting payments.
- From time to time, we will need to liaise with other professionals involved with your care, such as your GP, hospital consultant, solicitor, your case manager or other members of the multidisciplinary team.
- We will only do this with your consent and when it is necessary for your treatment/management.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are:
(a) Your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting email@example.com
(b) We have a contractual obligation.
(c) We have a legal obligation.
(d) We have a vital interest.

How we store your personal information
Brain & Mind Ltd gathers, stores and processes information in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Your information is securely stored electronically on our private practice manager software and on Microsoft protected with multifactorial passwords and key fobs.
We do not accept paper records and do not store these.
How long will we keep your information?
We keep your information in line with the Department of Health records retention schedule. We will also keep your personal information for a certain period after your health care has ended or you have completed your treatment.
When determining how long this period will last, we take into account our legal obligations, the expectations of data protection regulators, and the amount of time we may strictly need to hold your personal information to carry on our work. For example, if you have a patient record with us, we will keep your information and patient details for a specific length of time. To meet our legal and regulatory requirements, we must keep much of this information for many years.
We will also need to keep your information in archived form in order to protect our legal rights. This may be for the period during which legal claims can be made under applicable law. In the UK, this is six years for contractual claims.
Once the information is no longer needed we will definitively delete the electronic records accordingly and shred any existing paper records.
