Disclaimer, Policy, Terms and Conditions

Late Notice Policy and Fees:

To ensure that you receive the best possible care and achieve your goals it is important that you attend your scheduled appointments.

If you are unable to attend your scheduled appointment you must provide us with at least 24 hours’ notice, so we can offer the appointment to someone in need from our waiting list.

Notice must be given by phoning the clinic on 3394 1434. If there is no answer, please leave your name, contact number and time of appointment. We will call you back to help you reschedule.

 

If you provide less than 24hrs notice the full appointment fee will apply.

We are a small business and if we don’t have a chance to cover our costs and fill the appointment it affects our ability to deliver a quality service.

We understand that sometimes life gets in the way of scheduled appointment times and we do take extenuating circumstances into consideration.

We greatly appreciate your support and understanding of our policy and value your questions should you have any.

We also would like to avoid applying these fees, so your co-operation is greatly appreciated.

Late or missed appointment fees cannot be claimed under your health fund, WorkCover, insurance or Medicare.

 

The Fee is for the time booked. Options if you cannot make it to your appointment:

If you are not able to attend your scheduled appointment, you may consider another way you can use this session time. We can provide helpful phone consultations, or you may have a family member or friend who can attend to use this time.

 

WorkCover, Third Party and other insurance claims

All appointments must be paid in full at time of consultation. It is the responsibility of you the client to ensure you have the necessary forms and up-to-date medical certificate/s to cover your treatments if you are claiming through a third party. It is your responsibility to cover cost of treatment if your claim is rejected or not processed by a third party/private health.

I understand the Late Notice Policy and agree to pay any fees in accordance to the policy.

 

 

Informed Consent Form

The therapists in this practice will discuss your condition and options for treatment with you so that you are appropriately informed and can make decisions relating to treatment. You may choose to consent to, or refuse any form of treatment for any reason including religious or personal grounds. Once you have given consent, you may withdraw that consent at any time.

 

Please read and sign the following:

 Questions of a personal nature

Your therapist may ask personal questions relating to your presenting condition / injury and how your injury impacts on your ‘activities of daily living’. It is your choice what information you choose to provide.

 

Physical contact

During the examination, assessment and treatment it may be necessary for your therapist to make physical contact. Your therapist will ask your permission before making physical contact with you in any way.

 

Risks related to treatment

As with all forms of treatment, there are risks and benefits. The therapist will discuss any foreseeable risks with you prior to administering treatment.

This is to ensure that you fully understand any risks involved.
