Medical Records & Communication
We hold patient records in the strictest confidence. We share information only with other medical services providers involved directly in your care such as laboratory or imaging centres, or specialists to whom you have requested a referral. We use phone, fax and email to communicate with these other service providers. We aim to communicate confidentially, using secure government email systems where possible; but we accept no responsibility for breaches of these communication records. We will not share your information with anyone else, unless you give us permission to do so (e.g., with your NHS GP). The only exception is where a patient is considered to be a danger to themselves or others, or when required to do so by a court order. In providing us with an email address or phone number we consider this implied permission to contact you by this means regarding your healthcare. For COVID-19 testing, by using our services you consent to results data being shared with Public Health England.
Patient Identity Confirmation and Summary Care Record access
As part of our sign-up process, you are agreeing to us searching the patient demographic service, used by the NHS across the UK, to confirm if you have an NHS number.
There is a nationally agreed approach to identity management for health and care which conforms with identity assurance principles endorsed by the government and and is published under section 250 of the Health and Social Care Act 2012.
Your NHS number is a means of us confirming your identity and may avoid us needing to ask for photo ID.
Your unique NHS number useful should we need to communicate with other NHS providers and is essential should you need to be seen for instance, in the emergency department.
Appointments & In-Appointment Services
In booking a consultation with a medical practitioner, you agree to pay for that practitioner’s time regardless of the outcome of the consultation. All appointments must be prepaid at the time of booking. Any additional time, investigation or treatment is chargeable at an additional cost. Medical practitioners are responsible for their own clinical practice and for the advice, investigation and treatment they provide. Mayfield Clinic is not liable for patients’ well-being outside of the clinic’s opening hours and does not provide an out-of-hours service. Our service is not suitable for those who are acutely unwell; we advise those with acute illnesses to call 999 (for emergencies), 111 (for non-emergencies). You should also consider contacting your regular GP or attend their local A&E.
Our practitioners can only consult with the patient themselves or the parent or legal guardian of a child under 16. We cannot conduct a consultation about a friend or relative without their permission, although we can give general health advice. The person must be in the UK at the time of the consultation or normally reside in the UK. Patients can access their health records in line with the Data Protection Act 1998.
For remote consultations: There are limitations to remote consultations that can limit a practitioner’s ability to prescribe. You may be advised that you need to be examined in person.
Pricing & Cancellation Policy
Pricing transparency is important to us. For this reason, we try to provide all our pricing information on our website. We also aim to inform you before any additional billable items are delivered in-clinic within consultations. Appointment fees cover consultation time, and may also include pathology fees (e.g., for COVID Testing Appointments).
We require full pre-payment to secure your appointment with a healthcare professional. Appointments can be cancelled for a full refund up to 24 hours in advance of your appointment. After this time they are non-refundable. Appointments booked and paid for within 24 hours of the appointment time are non-refundable.
Your appointment booking covers a specific time slot. Once your time slot has ended the practitioner will not be able to assist you without another booking. If you do not attend for your allocated time slot you will not be eligible for a refund of your appointment fee.
Refunds are returned to the payment method used for the original booking. For card payments, our payments provider is Stripe. Refunds can take anywhere from 5-10 business days to show up in your customer account. See this Stripe article for more information. We cannot refund any medications, vaccinations, tests or treatments once they have been administered or dispensed.
For appointments with healthcare professionals, you may reschedule your appointment free of charge up to 24 hours before the time of your appointment. You can do this by signing into the online account used to make the booking. Inside 24 hours, appointments cannot be rescheduled.
Home Testing Services
Our home-testing services require full pre-payment at the time of purchase. Home testing kits are considered personalised items and are non-refundable per the distance selling regulations.
