Cancelling a visiting doctor service
If you have requested a next-available visit: When placing your order you will have been advised of a preliminary estimated time of arrival. You will then be contacted when the doctor is being despatched, with an updated time of arrival. At that time or at any time before then, you can cancel and obtain a full refund if the updated time of arrival is thirty or more minutes beyond the time initially quoted to you. For pre-booked visits: Once a visit has been booked for a specific time in the future, this is cannot be cancelled or changed.
Clinic appointments can be cancelled or changed subject to one working day notice and you will receive a full refund of any payments already made. Bookings made within 24-hours of the appointment time cannot be cancelled and full payment will be due; no refunds can be given.
If you decide to cancel, you should return the products to us at your cost within 7 working days of such cancellation and we will reimburse to you (by the method used to pay for the original transaction) the amount in relation to products to which cancellation rights apply. This includes the cost of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than our standard and least expensive method of delivery). You can cancel any product ordered online apart from any products which deteriorate or expire rapidly or any products that are sealed for health protection or hygiene reasons if you have unsealed them.
We will accept returns of unwanted, faulty or damaged products within 7 working days of you receiving the products. For faulty or damaged products a full refund will be made including the cost of the return postage. You should return the products to us within 7 working days of such cancellation.
The products should be returned to: Customer Services, Doctorcall Ltd, 5th Floor, King’s Court, 2-4 Exchange St. Manchester M2 7HA. To exercise the right to cancel, you must inform us of your decision to cancel your contract by a clear statement, including details of your name, geographical address, details of the order you wish to cancel, contact telephone number and email address.
Coupons, discounts and promotional discount codes offered by doctorcall.co.uk are valid only for use as part of a purchase made via doctorcall.co.uk, unless otherwise stated. Such promotional discounts are not valid for use as part of a purchase in Doctorcall clinics, or for telephone orders.
The Service is for users in the United Kingdom only. This service is suitable for those aged 18 or over. Skype video consultations are only suitable for those who have a Skype account and access to a webcam or mobile device with a camera.
Doctorcall does not guarantee that a telephone or video consultation is the best course of accessing advice or indeed the appropriate course of treatment for your particular healthcare concern or medical issue.
Our doctors cannot provide guidance about the health of a child, partner, relative or friend.
Our doctors are not able to arrange referrals to the NHS as part of this service:
Prescriptions, sick notes and other certificates may only be available during office hours and are issued at our doctor’s discretion.
It is not a substitute for your primary care provider and you should contact your GP immediately should your condition change or your symptoms worsen (if you are not registered with a UK doctor you should contact your local walk-in centre or hospital for advice).
If you have a medical emergency you should not use this service and instead you should call 999 or visit your local Accident and Emergency Department.
If you feel suicidal, you should not use this service, but should make contact with your GP. You can also telephone the Samaritans on 116 123
The information and advice provided by Doctorcall when you use the service is based on the information you have supplied to us.
It is your responsibility to ensure this information is correct and complete and you accept that failure to do so (whether intentionally or not) will affect the information and advice we give to you and the medicines we may supply to you and, as such, may have consequences for which we are not responsible.
If you would like to talk about a rash or other skin complaint, it is unlikely that our doctors would be able to have a clear enough view to help in diagnosis if you are using a mobile telephone to Skype.
Our doctors may need to ask sensitive medical questions as part of your telephone or Skype video consultation. Please ensure you are in a quiet, confidential place at your chosen time, free from interruptions.
You will need to make sure that you are in an area where your network or internet connection is not likely to be interrupted. This is especially important if you intend to use your mobile telephone for your telephone or Skype video consultation.
Certain mobile devices only have a rear facing camera and would need to be turned around for our doctors to view you during your video consultation. You should also bear in mind that some mobile telephones are not compatible with Skype. If you are unsure, you should check with your provider.
Skype video is a secure way of communicating. Information is encrypted as you log in and Skype uses digital certificates to ensure that you are in conversation with the right person. You should not need to apply any special firewall rules in order for Skype to function.
After your consultation the doctor will remove you from our contact list on Skype. This means that whilst you may be able to still call us on Skype, we will not be able to answer. If you wish to speak to one of our doctors again, you will need to book and pay for another appointment.
