We expect you to:
Arrive on time with your mobile phone set to silent or switched off. We need to start and finish at the scheduled time to maintain a consistent and excellent approach to healthcare treatment and customer service. Any delay will reduce treatment time and may impact on your recovery progress.
Respect our Late Notice Policy & Missed Appointment Policy.
Provide feedback. We value your opinion and in order for us to continue to improve our services we would appreciate it if you could take a few moments to provide feedback detailed in the email which will be sent to you following your initial consultation.
We promise to:
Always be on time as we understand your time is as precious as ours.
Commit to excellence in service and ongoing quality improvement.
Be open in our communication, give clear guidance and refer to a specialist if necessary
LATE NOTICE & MISSED APPOINTMENT POLICY
If your plans change we are happy to reschedule your appointment.
Please note we require a minimum of 24 hours notice.
Missed appointments are an inconvenience to the clinic, our other patients, and disruption to your management plan generally means that you will require more time and treatment to recover.
Should you cancel or not attend a scheduled appointment without providing 24 hours’ notice, a fee equal to 100% of the booked consultation will be charged.
- Payment Terms: 14 Days from date of invoice. No further services will be provided until owing accounts are paid in full.
- All overdue accounts will incur a late fee and be subject to debt collection.
- *Please quote invoice number as payment reference*
3rd Party Payers including but not limited to Health funds/Medicare/DVA/Work Cover do not cover these fees and you will be invoiced directly.
People who repeatedly miss or reschedule appointments will regretfully be discharged from care.
- Without adequate notice we’re unable to offer the appointment time to another person that needs our help.
- As a small locally owned and operated business we need to cover costs to continue offering a quality service and retain quality health practitioners in our region!
