Our cancellation policy has been set in line with the guidelines set out by the APS.

We do understand that sometimes you may be unable to keep an appointment due to sudden illness or an unexpected personal emergency.  In these circumstances, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your situation so that we can make alternative arrangements .  In some situations, we may request that you provide us with a medical certificate.

We would like to thank-you in advance for your respect and understanding of our policy.
