FULL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
1.1 Due to the nature of the health or skin products, we will not be able to provide refunds for opened items, except in the event of a clinically significant adverse reaction.
1.2 In the event of an adverse reaction, we will advise on an alternative product, which may be provided at no extra cost as a replacement for the product causing the reaction, at the company’s discretion.
2.1 All treatments at the Clinic will be performed by fully qualified practitioners who have received training in the procedures.
2.2 We endeavour to adhere to your clinic appointment times. However, there may be delays to your appointment due to clinical or administrative reasons. We will not have any liability in such an event other than to offer an alternative treatment time.
2.3 Prior to undergoing any treatment, you will have a full consultation with one of our team and will be asked to sign the consultation form to confirm your medical history and any pertinent information discussed. You will also be asked to sign and print an informed consent form. If at any time the information previously provided becomes updated or inaccurate, you must inform us as soon as possible and before any further treatments.
2.4 We reserve the right to refuse provision of any part of a treatment. This is usually, but not exclusively, due to clinical reasons. We will not be liable to you for any loss in the case of such cancellations.
2.5 All treatments, medications and procedures (major or minor) have a risk of adverse events. You will be fully counselled for clinically significant risks as part of the informed consent prior to any procedure or treatment. By signing the consent form, you are acknowledging the above amongst other details of the procedure. We will always endeavour to perform treatments with good skill and care. We will not be liable for any losses due to a recognised adverse event as long as the trained practitioner performed the procedure within good clinical practice.
2.6 In the unlikely event that there is any problem with your treatment or experience with the Clinic, you are advised to contact us directly and in a timely manner to help resolve matters.
- NON-ATTENDANCE AND CANCELLATION
3.1 If you do not attend a booked treatment without letting us know in advance then you will be responsible for either a consultation fee of £25 or not be offered another appointment, or both. The company has the final decision on the outcome.
3.2 Credit/Debit card details may be taken at the time of booking to secure your appointment slot. No charges are taken at all from this card and is used just to confirm booking. Your card data will be deleted entirely and is not stored after the date of your booked appointment.
3.3 You have the following rights to cancel any booking:
a) subject to the cancellation charges set out below, you may cancel any booking at any time prior to the booking;
b) if you cancel a booking and you have made any payment in advance for treatments that have not been provided to you, we will refund the representative amounts.
3.4 If you cancel a booking for a treatment you will be responsible for the following cancellation fee:
a) where the cancellation is more than 48 hours before the booked time for the treatment, there will be no cancellation fee.
b) where the cancellation is 48 hours or less before the booked time for the treatment, you will be responsible for a consultation fee of £25.
3.5 If we have to cancel a booking due to an event beyond our reasonable control, an unavailability of key personnel or products/materials, without which we cannot provide the treatments, we will contact you as timely as possible. Last minute cancellations by the company may very rarely occur due to clinical reasons. If you have made any payment in advance, we will provide a full refund.
