Medical Team (The Work Horses)
Dr Harpal Bains MBBS DFSRH PGCAestMed (Dist)
Dr Bains has had a varied and interesting career in medicine, starting with surgery whilst in the NHS and then moving on to private medicine for the past 10 years.
It all started with wanting to try something different. She was the company doctor with AKE limited, a hostile region training facility formed by former SAS elites. She trained journalists in medical survival in hostile regions.
This led her to London where she worked as a surgeon for Marie Stopes International. During this time, she pursued her postgraduate diploma in Sexual and Reproductive medicine which eventually led to working in a male sexual dysfunction clinic in Harley street. Her work in sexual dysfunction led her to testosterone and eventually the whole spectrum of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and nutritional medicine. She trained in the USA under Neal Rouzier, who is one of the foremost experts in the world in BHRT. Alongside this, she has developed her own protocol incorporating her in-depth experience to create a thorough programme to address her patients' needs and well being.
Throughout this time, she also pursued her interest in aesthetic medicine and has come up with her own protocol utilising top-notch medi skincare and treatments, botox/fillers where relevant and nutrition or hormones where indicated to give long term natural and age relevant results.
She is a die-hard fashionista and owns an embarrassing number of clothes and shoes. She even has her own fashion blog for professionals who love colour and vintage. She loves a party and can dance for hours into the night....the kind of guest that would get your party going with lots of laughs!
Interesting fact: she still counts in Mandarin – the language she was first taught mathematics for 6 years as a child. She also holds a black belt in Tae-kwon Do.

Taf graduated from the University of Chichester in the departments of Sports & Exercise Physiology and Training in Extreme Environments. He has worked at the highest end of elite sports; United States Air Force (Europe), Norwich City Football Club to name a few and for the NHS and Roodlane Medical for consultation, practice and research.
At Harpal Clinic, Taf's area of speciality is in micronutrient therapy. He creates powerful concoctions with vitamins, minerals and amino acids for IV drips and shots.
Interesting facts: Taf is a member of the London Scottish Pipe Band playing the drums and regularly takes part in the annual Lord Mayors Procession and the Beating Retreat (Horse Guards Parade).
The A-Team (Admin + Client Relations)
Mimi, Operations Maestro, MSc BA (Hons)
With a background in fashion journalism and broadcast media, Mimi has kept to her fashion roots with her bright red lips and on-trend fashion sense. More importantly, she has finally found her niche in being an organising supremo which she applies to client orders and prescriptions and the general running of the clinic; something she stumbled upon after constantly being called on to organise her friends' wardrobes. She also deals with all the paperwork and dips her toe in social media and web content.
Out of work (and occasionally at work) Mimi is an avid up-cycler and has even taken her love of up-cycling up a notch by attending woodworking classes. She also loves photography and showcasing her work on her instagram account. We at the clinic, hope to see some of her up-cycled pieces in the clinic and on our clinic instagram!
Interesting facts: Originally from Manchester, Mimi can speak Japanese, has a black belt in Aikido and a cat named Gorgeous.

All year round she loves baking, attending the theatre, watching movies and spending time with her friends and family.
