    Cancellation and failure-to-attend fees

    We require at least 24 hours notice for an appointment to be changed or cancelled.

    We often have patients waiting for an immediate appointment; failure to notify us in good time means other patients miss available appointments.

    Cancellations also have cost implications for the practice.

    Although discretion will be used, the full charge will be made if you fail to give adequate notice of your cancellation.

    Failure to attend an appointment OR cancellation of an appointment with less than 24 hours notice: the full fee will be charged.

    Prior cancellations at short notice:

    Pre-payment will be required at the time of booking

  • RESPECTING YOU - MODESTY MATTERS

    Open or Close

    It is important that you feel comfortable during your osteopathic treatment, particularly around matters of modesty and privacy.

    At the start of your first session we will ask questions about your medical history and lifestyle as well as your symptoms. This is very important as it will help us to make an accurate diagnosis and suggest appropriate treatment. This information is kept confidential in conjunction with the Data Protection Act 1998.

    We will need to examine the area(s) of your body causing discomfort. Sometimes the cause of the problem may be in a different area to the pain, (for example, a difference in leg length may result in compensations in the upper back which might result in neck pain) so we may need to examine your whole body.

    We will need to feel for tightness in the muscles and stiffness in the joints and may need to touch these areas to identify problems. We will explain this as we go along, but if you are uncomfortable with any part of this then let us know, we can discuss this with you or stop if you prefer.

    As with a visit to a GP or other medical professional, for us to examine you effectively it may be necessary for them to ask you to remove some clothing as appropriate for the condition. This may mean undressing down to your underwear. If this is a problem for you then let us know and we will try to make arrangements that make you more comfortable.

    You are also welcome to bring someone with you for all or part of your consultation, and children should always be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

    Remember, if you have any questions we will be happy to discuss this with you.
