Pelvix is committed to providing excellent care to you and to all of our patients. Missed or cancelled appointments impact on the quality of care we can provide but we do understand that often appointments are cancelled for genuine reasons, however missed appointments incur costs and a loss of income for our small business. They also affect service provision as that time cannot be used to treat other patients.

We request that you give the clinic 24 hours’ notice in the event that you cannot attend your appointment.  This allows another patient to be booked in.  You can inform us via email info@pelvix.co.uk or call or text 07378 362208

Appointments changed, altered, moved or cancelled for any reason with less than 24 hours’ notice will be charged at 50% of the full fee. If another patient is booked into the slot, you will not be charged.

If you miss an appointment without notifying us this is classed as a missed appointment and the full cost of the appointment will be charged.

If you arrive late for your appointment, we will do our best to see you but please bear in mind that this may not be possible and your full appointment fee will stand. 

This is summarised as follows:

    • Cancellation with more than 24 hours notice – no charge

    • Cancellation with less than 24 hours notice – 50% of the appointment fee charged

    • Failure to attend an appointment – Full cost of appointment charged

A chaperone is a third party, present during a consultation or examination, as a safeguard for all parties (patients and practitioners) who acts as a witness to continuing consent of the procedure being carried out. In the majority of cases chaperones are requested by female patients undergoing an intimate examination. A friend or family member can not act as an official chaperone but in practice, Pelvix is happy for a third party known to the patient to act as an unofficial chaperone. Pelvix will discuss the chaperoning policy with all patients prior to examination, as part of the process of gaining consent. If a patient wishes to have an official chaperone present, their appointment may need to be rescheduled to accommodate this. Pelvix also reserves the right to organise an official chaperone to be present during an examination.
