5. Providing the Services

5.1 If the products are one-off services (including video consultations and face to face appointments). We will begin the services on the appointment date arranged.

5.2 If the products are ongoing services (including a block of low-level laser therapy appointments). We will supply the services to you until the services are completed or you end the contract as described in clause 6 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 8.

5.3 We are not responsible for delays outside our control. If our supply of the services is delayed by an event outside our control, then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund for any services you have paid for but not received.

5.4 If you do not allow us to provide services. If you do not keep your appointment to allow us to perform the services as arranged, we will not refund any sums you have paid in advance for the services and you will be liable for the full cost of your appointment.

5.5 What will happen if you do not give required information to us. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the services to you, for example, name, date of birth, contact details and any other relevant information for your consultation or appointment . If so, this will have been stated in the description of the services on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 8.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the services late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

5.6 Reasons we may suspend the supply of services to you. We may have to suspend the supply of services:

(a) to deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes;

(b) if the Practitioner is unavailable due to illness, accident or other circumstance; or

(c) to update the services to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements.

5.7 Your rights if we suspend the supply of services. We will contact you as soon as possible to tell you we will cannot provide the services you have ordered, unless the problem is urgent or an emergency. If we have to suspend the services, we will seek to provide an alternative appointment insofar as possible. If we cannot agree an alternative appointment within 28 calendar days, you may contact us to end the contract for services and we will refund any sums you have paid in advance for any services which have not been del.

5.8 We may also suspend supply of services if you do not pay. If you do not pay us for the services when you are supposed to (see clause 10.3) and you still do not make payment within 7 calendar days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the services until you have paid us the outstanding amounts. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the services.

6. Your rights to end the contract

6.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on whether there is anything wrong with the services, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:

(a) If what the services are misdescribed, you may have a legal right to get the service re-performed or to get some or all of your money back, see clause 9;

(b) If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 6.2;

(c) If you have just changed your mind about the services, you may be able to get a refund if you are within the cooling-off period, but this may be subject to deductions, see clause 6.3;

(d) In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 6.4.

6.2 Ending the contract because of something we have done or are going to do. If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any services which have not been provided and you may also be entitled to compensation. The reasons are:

(a) we have told you about an upcoming change to the services or these terms which you do not agree to;

(b) we have told you about an error in the price or description of the services and you do not wish to proceed;

(c) there is a risk that supply of the services may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control;

(d) we have suspended supply of the services for a period of more than 28 days; or

(e) you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

6.3 How long do I have to change my mind? If you have selected a video consultation or face to face appointment, you can change your mind up to 48 hours before your appointment. If you have selected low level laser therapy treatment, you have seven days after the day we email you to confirm we accept your order. However, once we have completed the services you cannot change your mind, even if the period is still running. If you cancel after we have started the services, you must pay us for the services provided up until the time you tell us that you have changed your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind in respect of services, once these have been completed.

6.4 Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 6.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. A contract for services is completed when we have finished providing the services and you have paid for them. If you want to end a contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately, and we will refund any sums paid by you for products not provided but we may deduct from that refund reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.
