General Terms & Conditions

Fees

All our fees, products and services are subject to VAT and we provide an itemised receipt for each consultation, procedure or transaction. A verbal estimate will always be given where possible and written estimates are available on request. All estimates are only an approximation and if treatment is expected to exceed the estimate by 10% or more then will endeavour to contact you to discuss the situation further.

Settlement terms

We expect payment in full at the time of treatment. If we have to raise an invoice for any treatment, medication, diets or any other reason without prior agreement, then there will be an administration charge of £20 (plus VAT) added to your outstanding balance. Any further demands for payment by letter will also attract an administration charge of £20. Failure to pay will result in referral to our debt collection agency or the County Court. This will incur further charges.

Inability to pay

If your circumstances are such that you can not pay your bill, it is essential that you inform us as soon as possible.
