If we are required to obtain your consent to process your personal data, any information we use for this purpose will be kept until you withdraw your consent, unless we are entitled to retain the personal data on the basis of other grounds set out in the Data Protection Legislation.
What are your rights?
You benefit from a number of rights in respect of the personal data we hold about you. We have summarised the rights which may be available to you below, depending on the grounds on which we process your data. More information is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office website (https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation- gdpr/individual-rights/). These rights apply for the period in which we process your data.
1. Access to your data
You have the right to ask us to confirm that we process your personal data, as well as have the right to request access to copies of your personal data. You can also ask us to provide a range of information, although most of that information corresponds to the information set out in this fair processing notice.
We will provide the information free of charge unless your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive or repetitive, in which case we are entitled to charge a reasonable fee. We may also charge you if you request more than one copy of the same information.
We will provide the information you request as soon as possible and in any event within one month of receiving your request. If we need more information to comply with your request, we will let you know.
2. Rectification of your data
If you believe the personal data we hold about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you can ask us to rectify that information. We will comply with your request within one month of receiving it unless we don’t feel it is appropriate, in which case we will let you know why. We will also let you know if we need more time to comply with your request.
3. Right to be forgotten
In some circumstances, you have the right to ask us to delete the personal data we hold about you. This right is available to you:
-Where we no longer need your personal data for the purpose for which we collected it
-Where we have collected your personal data on the grounds of consent and you withdraw that consent

-Where we have unlawfully processed your personal data (i.e. we have failed to comply with GDPR); and
-Where the personal data has to be deleted to comply with a legal obligation
There are certain scenarios in which we are entitled to refuse to comply with a request. If any of those apply, we will let you know.
4. Right to restrict processing
In some circumstances, you are entitled to ask us to suppress the processing of your personal data. This means we will stop actively processing your personal data but we don’t have to delete it. This right is available to you:
-If you believe the personal data we hold isn’t accurate – we will cease processing it until we can verify its accuracy
-If you have objected to us processing the data – we will cease processing it until we have determined whether our legitimate interests override your objection

-If we no longer need the data but you would like us to keep it because you need it to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim
5. Data portability
You have the right to ask us to provide your personal data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format so that you are able to transmit the personal data to another data controller. This right only applies to personal data you provide to us:
-Where the processing is based on your consent or for the performance of a contract (i.e. the right does not apply if we process your personal data on the grounds of legitimate interests); and
-Where we carry out the processing by automated means
We will respond to your request as soon as possible and in any event within one month from the date we receive it. If we need more time, we will let you know.
6. Right to object
You are entitled to object to us processing your personal data:
-If the processing is based on legitimate interests or performance of a task in the public interest or exercise of official authority for direct marketing purposes (including profiling); and/or
-For the purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics
In order to object, you must have grounds for doing so based on your particular situation. We will stop processing your data unless we can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate grounds that override your interests, rights, and freedoms or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
Automated decision making
Automated decision-making means making a decision solely by automated means without any human involvement. This would include, for example, an online credit reference check that makes a decision based on the information you input without any human involvement.
We don’t carry out any automated decision-making using your personal data.
Your right to complain about our processing
If you think we have processed your personal data unlawfully or that we have not complied with GDPR, you can report your concerns to the supervisory authority in your jurisdiction. The supervisory authority in the UK is the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”). You can call the ICO on 0303 123 1113 or get in touch via other means, as set out on the ICO website - https://ico.org.uk/concerns/.

Complaint Resolution Procedure – Dr Ana The Skin Clinic
Definition of complaint
Any communication involving goods or a service that requires an investigation and formal response. Complaints may be made by letter or e mail or text.
If you are unhappy with the facilities or services you have received from Dr A. Mansouri or any other members of the team at Dr Ana The Skin Clinic, we would like to know about it as soon as possible so we can investigate your concerns and explain, apologise and take positive action where necessary. In most circumstances, if you tell us about your concern quickly, we can resolve matters straightaway. To let us know about something with which you are unhappy please speak with Dr Ana Mansouri in the first instance.
If you are not fully satisfied you can put your concerns in writing and use our formal Complaint Resolution Procedure which meets with the requirements set out by the Independent Doctors Federation (IDF) for its members and also the Independent Sector Complaints Adjudication Service (ISCAS).
The Complaint Resolution Procedure has three stages and reflects the principles of the ISCAS Code of Practice:
Stage 1 Local resolution within the individual practice
Stage 2 IDF Complaint Resolution Procedure to review the complaint
Stage 3 Independent Adjudication from ISCAS
Please note that Stages 1, 2 and 3 fall within the ISCAS Code of Practice for Complaints Management. A copy of this can be obtained from the IDF or from ISCAS.
Attention is drawn to the sections of the ISCAS Code which clearly explain what the Code does and does not cover. You should understand that if the complaint is not covered by the ISCAS code then stages 2 and 3 will not be available.
To start the formal Complaint Resolution Procedure you should write to:
Dr Ana Mansouri
Dr Ana The Skin Clinic, 3 Calthorpe Road, B15 1QP Edgbaston Birmingham
You should state what has caused you to have concerns and make your points clear. Please document when the relevant events took place and what results you expect from your complaint.
Complaints should normally be made as soon as possible at Stage 1, and within 6 months of the date of the event complained about, or within 6 months of the matter coming to the attention of the complainant. The time limit may be extended by the Independent Health Practitioner where the complainant has good reason for not making a complaint in the time limit (for example, where a complainant has been grieving), and there is a realistic opportunity of conducting a fair and effective investigation into the issues raised.
The named person at the practice will send you an acknowledgement of your letter within three working days of receipt of the complaint. You will be offered a meeting to discuss your complaint and to agree the heads of the complaint.
The investigation of your complaint will involve reviewing records of meeting(s) with you and reviewing all the correspondence and clinical records as well as statements provided by clinicians and others involved.
Reasonable assistance will be provided for complainants where required e.g. for those with a disability or those whose first language is not English.
A full response to your complaint will be made within 20 days of receipt of the complaint. If the investigation is still in progress after 20 days a letter will be sent to you explaining the delay and a full response made within five days of reaching a conclusion. In any event a holding letter will be sent every 20 days where an investigation is continuing.
If you remain dissatisfied following the final Stage 1 response, then you can request a review of your complaint, known as Stage 2 by writing to:
The Independent Doctors Federation
11 Chandos Street
Escalation to Stage 2 must be made in writing within six months of the final Stage 1 response.
The IDF Complaint Resolution Procedure will consider your complaint. The IDF Complaint Manager will send you an acknowledgement of your letter within three working days of receipt of your complaint and will request a summary of the matters that remain outstanding that you wish to be investigated. You will be invited to attend a meeting at the start of Stage 2 in order to clarify the matters that remain outstanding and obtain a greater understanding of what you hope to achieve by escalating the complaint. The IDF Complaint Manager will not have been involved in the matters that led to the complaint or the handling of the complaint at Stage 1. You will be asked to consent to release of records from the doctor. The IDF Complaint Manager will undertake a review of the documentation, any correspondence and the handling of and response to the complaint at Stage 1. If the review is still in progress after 20 days a letter will be sent to you explaining the delay and a full response made within five days of reaching a conclusion. In any event a holding letter will be sent every 20 days where a review is continuing.The IDF Complaint Manager will write to you when the review is completed to either confirm the outcome at Stage 1 or to offer an alternative resolution
At this time the IDF will advise you of your right to take the matter further to Stage 3 Independent External Adjudication by the Independent Sector Complaints Adjudication Service (ISACS).
Throughout the process all information, documents and records relevant to your complaint will be treated in the strictest confidence and no information will be divulged to any parties who are not involved in the IDF Complaint Resolution Procedure, unless required to do so by law.
This stage is only available to you if you remain dissatisfied once Stage 1 and Stage 2 are exhausted and aims to bring about a final resolution of the complaint to both parties.
In such a situation you should request the adjudication by writing to the Secretariat:
Independent Sector Complaints Adjudication Service (ISCAS)
CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution), 3rd Floor
100 St. Paul’s Churchyard
Tel: 020 7536 6091
This written request for adjudication must be made within six months of the final determination by the IDF at Stage 2. You should provide reasons to explain the dissatisfaction with the outcome of Stage 2. ISCAS will acknowledge receipt of the request within three working days
ISCAS will seek confirmation from the IDF that Stage 2 has been completed.
ISCAS will notify the IDF of a request for Stage 3 independent external adjudication. The IDF will respond to requests from ISCAS within ten working days and confirm whether Stages 1 and 2 have been completed. ISCAS will then be your main contact once adjudication is started. You will be asked to consent to the release of records from the doctor and the IDF relevant to the complaint. ISCAS will issue the decision within 20 working days or provide a progress update every 20 working days if the decision is delayed. A report will be made to you, the doctor concerned and the IDF.
Additional information for patients about ISCAS can be found at: https://iscas.cedr.com/

Unacceptable behaviour by complainants
At each stage of the complaints procedure, it might be deemed that a patient’s behaviour is unacceptable. We have a policy in place to handle unacceptable behaviour of complainants.
