Cancellation and Missed Appointments

Blackwood Podiatry requires at least 24 hours notice to cancel and appointment.  If less than 24 hours notice is given, a cancellation fee may be charged which will be 75% of the full consultation fee.

Please Note: this fee is not covered by compensable bodies such as private health insurance and must be paid directly by the patient.
