At the end of your appointment we will record the date, your treatment and price paid on your treatment record card. We will also ask you to sign this to confirm that you are happy with the treatment you have received and that you have received the relevant and appropriate aftercare advice.

For each client attending an appointment on or after 25th May 2018, we will ask you to sign a one-time privacy agreement, which will be stored with your client consultation card & treatment record(s). You may ask to see this agreement again at any time.
