Terms & Conditions
(1) Cancellations and Missed Appointments
From Monday 22nd June 2020 we are amending our policy on Missed Appointments. Failure to attend an appointment, without giving 48 hours prior notice, will result in a £25 deposit being taken upon booking a further appointment. This will be held as a deposit on your account. If you attend your appointment this will either be deducted from the price of your treatment or refunded to you if we are unable to treat you based on medical grounds. If you cannot attend an appointment please give us at least 48 hours notice by telephoning 0800 9179334. Messages via email and other channels are not a valid form of communication.
(2) Private Weight Loss and Wellness Assessments
We require 48 hours notice if you wish to cancel or rearrange either parts of your Private Weight Loss and Wellness Assessment. If you cancel or rearrange less than 48 hours of the appointment date, you will not be refunded the appointment fee. If you cannot attend an appointment please give us at least 48 hours notice by telephoning 0800 9179334. Messages via email and other channels are not a valid form of communication. Appointments cancelled or rearranged less than 48 hours within the date and time of the appointment date will require the full £50 payment
(3) Missed Payments
We expect all patents to have means available to pay for their appointment and programme on the day of their appointment. Failure to pay will result in a £30 deposit being taken upon booking a further appointment. This will be refunded or credited against treatment only if the subsequent appointment is attended and new programme fee paid for.
