PURPOSE

6. Our objective is to allow you in your capacity as parent/legal guardian of a person under your care including persons under 18 years of age and persons with chronic health conditions that are yet to transition to adult services (Patient) to make a Booking for a telehealth consultation on the website with one or more medical professional which may include but is not limited to a Paediatric Medical Practitioner, Medical Practitioner or other health practitioner (Health Practitioner). The Health Practitioner will provide you with medical advice in relation to the Patient’s situation (Services). We will manage your experience from our Website throughout the Booking process until the Services are provided. Once you have made your Booking, you will be allocated a Health Practitioner who will engage with you through the Website at the time specified in your Booking.

YOUR ACCOUNT

7. To make a Booking using our Website, you need to create an Account. When you create an Account, you must designate a username and password, and will also have to provide credit card details. You must keep any password you create secret and confidential, and prevent others from accessing your email address used in the Account. You are able to nominate other legal guardians and authorised users to access the Account who are authorised as legal guardian of the Patient. You acknowledge that any authorised users are required to keep the login details to the Account secret and confidential. If another person uses these methods to access your Account, you will be responsible to pay for any Booking they make, and we are not responsible for any other losses you suffer, unless the party accessed your Account because we did not keep it secure.

8. You may close your Account at any time by requesting to do so in your account section of our Website

or contacting us using the contact details above. We may suspend your access to your Account, or close it permanently, if we believe that your Account has been used by someone else. We may also close your Account if in our opinion you are abusing our Service (for example, by applying for refunds or credit to which we do not consider you are entitled, making repeated unreasonable complaints, mistreating our staff, or any other good reason). If we close your Account before your Booking (at least 24 hours before the allocated meeting time) we will refund any payment you have made using the Website by applying a credit to your registered credit card, or if that is not possible for any reason, by way of a bank transfer using bank details (provided you have supplied them to us).

BOOKINGS AND SERVICES

9. When you make a Booking through our Website, it needs to be accepted by us and a Health Practitioner needs to be assigned to your matter before it is confirmed. Once confirmed you will receive a confirmation notice (Confirmation Notice).

10. When you receive a Confirmation Notice in connection with a Booking the Services will be provided on the date and time specified in the Confirmation Notice.

11. The Services will be performed off-site via video-conference or if a video-conference is not able to be provided, by way of a telephone call, and accordingly it will not be possible for the Health Practitioner to conduct a physical examination, test or check in the same way as you would be treated in an on-site appointment.

12. Where the Services are provided by way of a telephone call, standard call rates will apply however we accept no responsibility for additional telephone, MMS, international call rates or data charges you accrue.

13. The Health Providers will make up to two (2) attempts to contact you at the date and time set out in the Confirmation Notice failing which, your Booking will be cancelled at no cost to you.

14. After the consultation, you will receive a copy of your consultation summary, and, if applicable, prescription and referral to be made available on a secure patient portal which you can access at your convenience. If specifically requested, these documents can be emailed to you.

15. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, things do not always go to plan and factors such as internet outages, emergencies or other delays due to unexpected extended consultations may prevent our Health Practitioner from participating on time and we cannot be held responsible for interruptions to the Service. If the Health Practitioner is more than 30 minutes late for a pre-booked consultation or 90 minutes late for an on-demand consultation, we will work with you to make things right unless you have caused the delay (e.g. because you gave us the wrong details).

16. As part of the Services being provided, the Health Practitioners may recommend that the patient attend the emergency room and/or that an ambulance is called.

YOUR RIGHTS

17. You have a legal right to receive Services in relation to the Booking. If you believe that the Services you have received do not comply with these legal rights, please let us know as you have a legal right to have the issue remedied. We will remedy any failure in accordance with your legal rights. This may include providing a refund or account credit, unless we have reasonable cause to believe that the problem was caused or contributed to by you.

18. Prior to processing your refund or account credit, we may take into account relevant factors including the details of the Booking, whether the Patient was referred to the emergency room, your account history, what happened on the day of the meeting and information from our Health Practitioner who attended the meeting and provided the Services when determining the remedy that will apply in the circumstances.

CANCELLATION

19. You may cancel your Booking without charge at least 24 hours before your meeting with our Health Practitioner (Proceeding Booking). If you wish to cancel a Booking before it becomes a Proceeding Booking, please contact us immediately, via our Website. If the Booking is not a Proceeding Booking, we will refund your payment using the same payment method as you used to originally pay for the Product. If you cancel your Booking after it becomes a Proceeding Booking, you will be charged fifty percent (50%) of the full price.

20. We may notify you that a Booking has been cancelled at any time. You will not be charged for any Booking cancelled by us, and we will reimburse you for any payment already made using the same method you used to pay. We may also apply credit to your account to reflect the inconvenience caused.
