    • Booking Confirmation: You must ensure that we have received your booking confirmation at least 24 hours before your scheduled appointment.

These are crucial for allowing our clinicians to review your information and verify your identity. Your appointment cannot proceed without this step.
    • You confirm that you are not currently receiving care from a community mental health team or have been recently discharged from a tier 4 service.
    • International clients may need to provide additional identification or documentation due to different regulations in their country of residence.

4. Payment and Fees

    • All fees are displayed in British Pounds (GBP) and that international clients are responsible for the currency conversion rate at the time of payment. Any foreign transaction fees or other charges are the responsibility of the client.
    • Payment Options:

      • Full Payment: Clients can choose to pay the full amount at the time of booking via accepted payment methods.
      • Instalment Payment Plan: Clients can opt to pay in three instalments. The following terms apply:
        • Account Setup: Clients must open an account on our platform to utilise the instalment plan.
        • First Instalment: Payment of the first instalment is required to open an account and initiate the process.
        • Second Instalment: Payment of the second instalment will allow us to arrange a consultation at a mutually convenient time and date for both the consultant and the client.
        • Third Instalment: Payment of the third instalment will enable us to release the assessment report. This payment will also trigger the provision of the free shared care agreement and the free prescription, if required.
        • Time Limit for Payments: Clients must complete the payment of all instalments within a 90-day period from the date of the initial payment. Failure to complete the payment within this time frame may result in the cancellation of the consultation and forfeiture of any prior payments made.
        • Non-payment of Final Instalment: If the final instalment is not paid, Harley Mind Care Psychiatrists Ltd. reserves the right to withhold the release of the assessment report, shared care agreement, and prescription.

        • First Instalment: Refunds for the first instalment can be made before the second payment is due, subject to deduction of any payment provider costs.
        • Second Instalment: Once the second instalment is paid and the appointment is booked, no refunds will be issued in the event of cancellation.

      Late Arrival: Patients arriving more than 15 minutes late may need to reschedule and the cancellation policy applies. For clients on the instalment plan, late arrival that leads to rescheduling does not alter the payment schedule.
