4. Your Account
You agree, at all times, to provide us with accurate and complete information in your registration and account, and to update such information as appropriate.
5. Video Consultations
A few days before your consultation, please ensure that you know how to log on. If you have difficulty, you can contact our admin team who will take you through the necessary steps.
You must have available a photo proof of identity (for example a Passport or Driver’s License) to show the Doctor at the start of your consultation. If the doctor cannot verify your identity, they may choose to cancel the consultation or be unable to issue a prescription. Please, therefore, ensure that you provide correct and accurate information.
At the beginning of each consultation, the doctor will confirm the address from where you are having your consultation from. The purpose of this is, in the unlikely event of an emergency, the doctor can notify the emergency services of your location.
The Kensington Doctors provides a service that allows users to consult with a doctor via secure video chat via our software Pabau or Zoom.
You agree to always provide any doctors with whom you have a video consultation, with accurate and complete information about you.
The doctor allocated to you will record the results of the consultation as required by law and regulatory requirements.
You agree to review and inform us of anything that you believe to be incorrect or inaccurate.
At the time of your consultation:
- You must make sure that you have good internet access.
- Consultations need to take place in a private setting. They CANNOT take place if you are driving, walking in the park, in a café or another non-private environment.
The doctor will terminate the consultation if the above takes place, and you will need to rebook a new consultation and pay again.
If the doctor, based on his/her medical assessment, decides that you are suitable for treatment, he/she may issue a private prescription that shall be dispensed by the nominated pharmacy.
You understand and accept that there is no guarantee that you will be approved to receive a prescription following a video consultation. Prescriptions are issued at the sole discretion of the Doctor.
Please note that the only controlled drugs that we can prescribe at The Kensington Doctors are Testosterone and DHEA. These two medications are classified under Controlled Drugs Schedule 4 Part 2.
Other types and classes of controlled drugs (or restricted drugs and substances as classified by The Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001), specialist drugs, medications that require closer monitoring, drugs such as benzodiazepines, opioids such as morphine, and other classes of drugs regarded as strong painkillers such as a high dose codeine phosphate are considered unsuitable for prescribing online. This is not an exhaustive list, and there may also be other drugs and medications that doctors will be unable to prescribe. If you require these medications, please do not book an appointment with us as these will NOT be provided and you will still be charged for the consultation.
All medications prescribed will be related to hormone replacement therapy or doctors are comfortable and familiar with the medications.
You agree and consent to the TGL sharing basic identification data with the nominated pharmacy, for the purposes of enabling the pharmacy to verify your identification on collection of your prescription. The pharmacy will contact you directly to process the prescription, including to confirm your details and, if the delivery option is selected, to arrange delivery.
All prescriptions that are issued by a doctor are only valid at approved UK pharmacies.
Problems with the processing of prescriptions, and the dispensing of medication, by pharmacies.
The Kensington Doctors has no control over or responsibility for any individual pharmacy, or its policies in relation to the acceptance or processing of prescriptions, the dispensing of medication, or delivery or opening times.
If a prescription issued to you by a doctor, is not processed, dispensed or (if applicable) delivered to you correctly; we recommend that you contact the nominated pharmacy. You may, in these circumstances, be entitled to a refund from the relevant pharmacy. You will not, however, be entitled to a refund for the fees you have paid for the video consultation itself.
The Fee to book an appointment is 50£. This will be redeemed towards your treatment. If you don’t ‘turn up’ to your appointment or decide not to have the treatment then your 50£ will not be refunded.
8. Cancellation Policy
Any cancellation with less than two working days’ notice will incur a full charge. If you wish to cancel, either call us at +44 77843 36868 during our working hours or email us at email@example.com and provide your name, date of birth and the time of your consultation.
Please note that if you do not attend your appointment without 48 hours prior notice, you will be charged for the full appointment time, and you will need to rebook at the full rate.
All registration documents MUST be submitted prior to the initial consultation, otherwise, your appointment will have to be cancelled and you will be charged for the full appointment time.
