Disclaimer

The individual specialists you see will ensure to provide you with the most appropriate treatment plan catered to your needs, this may be adjusted where necessary to ensure you are receiving the best quality of care possible.

Please be aware that if you have not attended or communicated with any specialist, it will be assumed that you have self-discharged from our services. Although we are unable to delete any clinical records, patients that have not been seen for over six months will archive files. Should you wish to resume treatment at any time, we are still able to obtain and have access to your files, such as your treatment notes and your medical history throughout the time you have had treatment with us.
