Terms & Conditions
Podiatry treatment is offered subject to the following:
Treatment fees are payable for all treatment/work given or received whether treatment is given or received in our surgeries, in the patient’s home or some other location agreed between our staff and the patient (or patient’s guardian).
No credit will be given – fees are due at the time treatment is given or received, except for online bookings who must pay at the time of booking.
I understand that all services provided by the clinic are non-refundable. If you have any concerns about your treatment, please email Info@wellnesspodiatry.co.uk and we will take reasonable steps to resolve your concerns.
Fees will vary according to the treatment given or received. Normally a fee is due for the type of treatment given or received in addition to the time the treatment takes, therefore, if you receive treatment which is more highly skilled and/or takes longer than expected you may be charged a greater fee. The basic template of fees is available by telephoning the clinic you are visiting.
Additional fees will be charged for online bookings, extra services and items/products used during your treatment, this may include dressings, anaesthetics, bandages, insoles/orthoses, medicaments, foot-care products, scans, further assessments and advice, etc. – this list should not be considered exhaustive.
We shall not discriminate against you due to any disability you may have.
We shall treat you with the same respect, professional care and professional conduct as anyone else regardless of your gender, gender identity, sex, sexuality, race, religion, disability or profession.
We reserve the right to treat you or not treat you, and to withdraw treatment at any time, without notice, in accordance with the rules and codes of conduct of the College of Podiatry and the Health & Care Professions Council.
I understand that personal information is confidential and will be used for no other purpose than my medical record and to comply with legal and regulatory requirements of Royal College of Podiatry, Health Care Professions Council.
. As a medical facility your medical and personal data is securely stored for a minimum of 7 years and no paper records are held. If you require a copy of your medical record please email Info@wellnesspodiatry.co.uk and the company has 30 days in order to provide your subject access request (SAR).
If you are referred into our service via private medical insurance companies or NHS providers, the company has contractual obligations to hold your personal data. If you wish to discuss your data held by Wellness Podiatry please email the Data Controller Info@wellnesspodiatry.co.uk
Social media photographs: The Podiatrist will always ask verbal consent to use your photo on our social media platforms.
I allow and consent to the Podiatrist to send a report to associated allied health professionals and my GP, when required, regarding my examination and treatment plan. Please inform your clinician if you do not wish Wellness Podiatry to send consultation letter correspondence to your GP or mutual allied health professional.
I understand and am informed that, as in all health care, in the practice of podiatric medicine, there are some risks to treatment. I do not expect the Podiatrist to be able to anticipate and explain all risks and complications and I wish to rely on the podiatrist and consent for the clinician to exercise judgement during treatment.
Our clinicians use a shared decision-making approach to your care, gaining verbal informed consent for treatment. We may also request formal consent for advanced procedures.
An adult is a person who is 16 years and over. Wellness Podiatry require all adults with full capacity to schedule consultations. If you prefer someone else to make bookings on your behalf, please advise Wellness Podiatry via email or telephone who you wish to authorise, such as a parent or partner.
Mental capacity and consent for adults: If you are scheduling an appointment for an adult over the age of 16, Wellness Podiatry require consent from the individual to hold their personal data and schedule a consultation. If you have financial and health related power of attorney, we will request a copy to be sent via email to Info@wellnesspodiatry.co.uk
Mental capacity and consent for children under the age of 16: If you are scheduling an appointment for a child under the age of 16, Wellness Podiatry require a parent or legal guardian to schedule, attend and make decisions regarding the consultation.
You should receive an SMS and Email confirmation at the time of booking and 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you have not received confirmation of your appointment, you may not be booked. Call 07487 393579 or email Info@wellnesspodiatry.co.uk to confirm if you are unsure.
Wellness Podiatry may change the price of our services at any given time. The company will notify existing patients via email and publish a notice at reception at least 10 days before a price change. If you wish to cancel an existing consultation, please notify us via telephone or email at least 24 hours prior to a scheduled consultation. If you wish to attend your consultation, this will be charged under the new pricing structure.
As a new patient you will be asked to complete a digital consent form, you would be digitally signing and agreeing to the above statements in line with Wellness Podiatry’s terms and conditions. If you have any questions about the above please contact us. We may not be able to review you within our clinic if you fail to complete and submit this form.
Normal opening hours are posted on the website, however, occasionally we may offer to see you earlier or later, on Sundays and bank holidays at our discretion. Appointments are mutually agreed between us and you, in advance, and upon acceptance of the appointment, verbally or otherwise, you are legally bound to keep the appointment, subject to the following:
Appointments – booking
You may book an appointment by visiting or telephoning or using our on-line booking system. Home visits are charged at a higher rate than clinic appointments.
We do not currently accept bookings by email, all appointments must be made by telephone or the on-line booking system. If you choose to contact us by email, Whatsapp or text message, we will not be held responsible for any delay in responding to you.
When you book your appointment on-line you are required to pay at the time of booking whether you are a new or existing patient. The fee you pay is slightly higher than the fee you would pay when you book an appointment off-line, as it includes an on-line booking fee, which covers the additional cost of taking your payment on-line.
Appointments – cancellation, postponement and missed (failed visits)
You may postpone, cancel or re-arrange your appointment, without penalty*, up to 24 hours before your appointment except when your appointment is on a Sunday or a Monday, in which case you must notify us by 5pm on the Friday before the appointment, by visiting or telephoning the clinic you have made the booking with or using the on-line booking system
If you are attending under Private Medical Insurance, you may be personally liable for failed to attend consultations.
We do not accept notification by email under any circumstances. Failure to notify us face-to-face, by telephone or using the on-line booking system, within these limits, will result in you being charged the full appointment fee. All of our clinics are equipped with telephone answering machines and record the day, date and time of messages.
*If you booked online and cancel your appointment giving the required notice, you will receive a refund of the appointment fee less the online booking fee, which is the difference in cost between the on-line charge and the off-line charge (the amount you would pay for the appointment if you had booked over the telephone or in one of our branches). This is because we have to pay the on-line booking fee at the time of booking and it is non-refundable.
You will be expected to pay for all postponed, cancelled and/or missed appointments within 7 calendar days of the date of the failed, cancelled and/or missed appointment if you have not prepaid at the time of booking.
You may not use our services again until any outstanding fees have been paid.
If fees remain unpaid for more than 21 days we reserve the right to refer your outstanding debts to a debt collection agency/recovery service or to the Magistrates (small claims) Court for payment collection.
We reserve the right to postpone, cancel or rearrange your appointment without notice. Please note: we will only do this in exceptional circumstances which may include sickness, accident, poor weather, any other incident which affects the ability of a team member to attend your appointment or where premises become unavailable due to circumstances beyond our control. We will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible if we need to do this giving you as much notice as possible.
If you have a history of poor attendance we reserve the right to ask you to prepay for your appointments, and reserve the right to refuse treatment if you refuse to do so.
Methods of payment
You may pay your bill with either cash (in sterling), or credit/debit card when you book off-line (in branch or over the telephone). When booking on-line you will be required to pay at the time of booking using your debit card/credit card.
We do not accept payment by way of barter e.g. goods or services in exchange/or to the value of the treatment fees due.
These terms and conditions apply to services provided by Alif Medical Ltd (also trading as Wellness Podiatry) only, and are subject to change without notice (different terms and conditions may apply to third party services offered within our clinic e.g. chiropractic, physiotherapy, reiki, massage, etc.). Up to date details can be requested by emailing us or writing to our Head Office.
