Arriving late for your appointment

We aim to run the clinic as smoothly and punctually as possible. We want to provide the best care for our patients, reduced appointment times due to late arrivals may result in delayed treatment results.

Patients who arrive late for their appointment will be subject to a reduced appointment time or maybe asked to reschedule.

Paying for your treatment

You can see all our treatments and services on our website, along with fee rates. We updated our fee rates in June 2021. 

You will need to settle the cost of your treatments or purchases in full at the time of your appointment. We do not provide credit. Unsettled invoices are subject to a £50 late payment charge. 

If you are covered by private medical insurance, we’ll be happy to provide you with a receipt or a letter so you can claim back the fees for your treatments or products directly with them. If your appointment is covered by the Government of Jersey's Pension Plus Scheme (PPS), please read our policy on PPS below. 

We do not liaise with private medical or health insurance companies on your behalf. If you request that we liaise with your medical insurance directly, a £10 admin fee will be added to your invoice.
