Children and infants
We regret that we are unable to accept children and infants in the clinic. We accept this might cause inconvenience but our considered reasons are as follows…
- We do need to ensure a quiet and respectful ambiance for all our clients and we do not have the facilities or physical space
to stow buggies and prams in the clinic.
- The clinic contains furnishings and equipment that are delicate and may, if interfered with, pose a
danger to children, whether unsupervised or supervised.
- As much as we love our kiddies, their natural curiosity and imaginative natures means their desire to explore may bring them into danger!
- Finally, for obvious safety reasons, children are not allowed in treatment rooms (needles, syringes, equipment etc!) and we are
not able to supervise or be responsible for children if left in the waiting room.
It is therefore respectfully advised that we cannot accept children and infants in the clinic and ask that you arrange
suitable childcare for the duration of your appointment.

INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS
We are a state-registered clinic (regulated by the Care Quality Commission - CQC) not a beauty salon. We expressly employ registered healthcare-trained professionals to provide a range of treatments and services on the assumption that the treatments we provide are for primarily medical reasons. As a doctor-run medical clinic our responsibility is firstly to our patients. We therefore only provide treatments where it is felt it is in the patient's best interest to prescribe them and they are performed for primarily medical reasons. This follows a consultation with a medical practitioner, a relevant medical history is taken and assessed and patient consent to treatment is then obtained.
Whilst medical treatments are exempt from Value Added Tax, clinics are required to add Value Added Tax (20%) onto treatments that are primarily for cosmetic reasons.
Many aspects of one's physical facial appearance, body image, skin-health or general health and weight can have a negative effect on the way a person perceives oneself and it can negatively affect one's life confidence, self-esteem, personality or the way one interacts with others.
Many people receive, so called cosmetic (also referred to as non-surgical) treatments to control migraines, frequent headaches and atypical facial pain. Others seek this treatment or a wide range of other treatments to improve their self-esteem or self-confidence, treat depression, or other medical conditions such as damaged skin, scarring, burns, excessive sweating, or other medical skin disorders.
Your particular reasons for having chosen a treatment will be discussed with your practitioner during a free consultation and we have a wide range of treatments, services and therapies, all administered in a clinical setting that can help relieve or treat a wide range of medical concerns.
Some of these treatments may be long-term and on-going and there are many other medical reasons why people seek advice from registered healthcare/medical practitioners.
By attending our clinic we hope that you do not mind self-certifying that your treatment is for the relief of primarily a medical reason, concern or condition. We feel that a record of this fact will enable us to demonstrate that we only provide treatments where it is felt it is in the patient's best interest to prescribe them as there is a medical need for the treatment(s) as determined between the patient and the medical practitioner.
MONITORING QUALITY - VOICE RECORDING
To help us monitor the quality of the service we provide as well as for your protection and the protection of our practitioners, please note that all calls to our clinic as well as consultations and treatments carried out may be recorded by audio voice recording equipment. These recordings are securely stored and their contents are not shared with any person or organisation outside our clinic without your written permission (except where needed for legal reasons). If this causes you concerns please do not hesitate to contact us for more information but please note our practitioners may refuse to treat or consult with you if audio voice recording is refused by you.
