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.
We only collect the information we need in order to perform our podiatry consultation services (“Services”). We comply at all times with the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), the Health Records (privacy and Access) Act 1997 and other legislation which, from time to time, regulates how personal information is handled including all your health details with any sensitive information. We will not disclose your personal information without your consent unless required due to a medical emergency, injury, health risk or similar and we will only do so to a qualified professional who is under the same duty of confidentiality.
Some podiatry interventions may have a small risk of complications for some patients. As part of our ‘duty of care’, we are obliged to inform you of any potential risks that may be associated with the podiatry care that we provide.
