2. General Information
To book an appointment, all patients are required to provide contact details, including name, home address, telephone number and email address. In order to confirm your consultation and treatment, you will also be required to complete a medical history form. This will be supplied by email ahead of your first appointment. All information provided by patients will be confidential and protected in accordance with Data Protection legislation. Patient information will not be shared with third parties without written consent and you will not receive unsolicited communication from Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics. At any time, you may request to be removed from our mailing list to stop any further communication from Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics.
Patient consultations with Dr Raquel require a deposit of £35. This is payable upon booking and is redeemable against treatments undertaken within 28 days of the consultation. During very busy times at the clinic, we may take a nominal deposit of £50 to safeguard against missed appointments. This is refundable upon attendance of the appointment. Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics operates a 48-hour cancellation policy. Please provide as much notice as possible if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, but no less than 48 hours in advance. If you fail to attend an appointment without advising us in advance, a £50 non-refundable booking fee will be charged to secure a future appointment. If we hold a deposit on account, this will be forfeited. If you are undergoing a course of treatment as part of a package or programme and fail to attend or do not provide 48 hours’ notice of cancellation or change, the treatment will be forfeited. If you are feeling unwell, or have a local skin infection such as a cold sore, do not attend the clinic for your appointment. If you are unsure of what constitutes as unwell, please call the clinic to discuss before your appointment. As a courtesy, routine review appointments are offered after treatment with Botulinum Toxin at two to three weeks. If you are unable to attend this review appointment, no additional treatment or ‘top up’ will be provided once the review period has passed. All new patients are seen for consultation and assessment. In order to ensure an adequate cooling off period, treatment is not recommended on the first visit. However, it may be provided if the patient and practitioner agree it to be suitable.
We do not treat children or young adults under the age of 18 without prior arrangement with a parent or guardian. Please do not bring children to the clinic unless they are old enough to be left unsupervised.
As outlined above, consultations with Dr Raquel are subject to a £35 fee, which is payable on upon booking. This is redeemable against treatment carried out within 28 days of consultation. Before any treatment is undertaken, patients will be advised of the full costs of any treatment proposed, including that of any maintenance treatment, and agreed with the patient. Payment is taken in full at the time of treatment. A discretionary deposit may be taken for some treatments and in some circumstances. The clinic accepts cash, or major debit and credit cards.
Fees charged for treatment are for the delivery of the treatment and the accompanying service. This includes: consultation and assessment; provision of information and advice; medically safe treatment with evidence-based products; follow-up appointments and aftercare advice as appropriate. Dr Raquel Skin & Medical Cosmetics cannot guarantee your results and therefore, cannot offer refunds if the results achieved fail to meet your expectations. However, we undertake at all times to provide excellent service, safe and ethical advice and expert treatment by a medical professional. All packages are to be paid in full before treatment commences and are non-refundable and non-transferrable.
7. Dr Raquel Membership Programme
If a client fails to attend an appointment as part of their Membership Programme, or provides fewer than 48 hours’ notice of cancellation, the session will be deducted from the programme. A direct debit is required to be set up at the time of deposit payment. If the direct debit is cancelled during the programme, any additional perks and skincare given will become chargeable at full price and any package discounts will be lost.
Your feedback is always appreciated. Feedback is used to review and improve the quality of service we offer. You may submit feedback verbally, via email, via the clinic website, or via Facebook or Google Reviews.
