Terms and Conditions for the Clinic
Please allow plenty of time to get to your appointment so that you arrive in time and don’t feel stressed! Should you arrive too late then please accept a reschedule so that we can fully carry out your planned treatment and not hold up the following patients. There may be a charge for a reschedule.
Please provide us with a minimum of 48 hours notice should you wish to change your appointment, so that the time can be offered to another patient. If notice is not given, sadly we do have to make a full charge for the allocated time.
In the case of a genuine emergency we reserve the right to use our discretion in waiving the charge. In the event of other cancellations, we will endeavour to fill the time allocated to you with another patient; however, we reserve the right to make a full charge for the time lost.
Health programmes run for a minimum term of 12 months.
If for any reason you wish to discontinue a health programme within the 12 month period then a final settlement is required whereby you will be charged full fees for any treatments taken, at the current chargeable rates plus a cancellation fee of £15 less any payments made.
For any outstanding payments we send two reminder letters and then we place the account in the hands of a debt collecting agency and you will be charged directly for their fees.
During the course of your treatment you will be prescribed nutritional and herbal products which are not included in the consultation price. Since treatments are individually tailored, it is not possible to give absolute costs; however we do recommended you budget between £30-50/month.
In certain circumstances intensive treatments will be recommended which require the use of many herbs and supplements. Depending on the individual programmes these can range anything from £50 to £150.
If you have budgetary limits then please discuss these with your practitioner.
All products recommended are selected from suppliers that offer the highest quality of natural, organic products as close to food source as possible. However, we cannot be responsible for the quality control of third party supplements.
