Terms and Conditions of Business
This document sets out the terms upon which we carry out physiotherapy work for our customers. This is an important document. Please keep it in a safe place for future reference. These terms and conditions apply not only to current work but also to all future work unless we write to you amending the terms. In this document and in any correspondence with you, "Director" means Tim or Rhiannon Bradford, "We" and "Our" means Bradford's Clinics UK Ltd and "You" means the person who is our customer or, if more than one person, those persons who together are our customer. Where we act for two or more customers jointly it is on the understanding that we are authorised to act on instructions of either, both or any of them.
Bradford's Clinics UK Ltd is a Limited Company, registration number 10664401. All of our clinicians are Members of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.
Office Hours: The office is open from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday excluding Public/ Bank Holidays.
Treatment Hours: These will be determined by caseload and will be confirmed with you at time of booking.
Client Confidentiality: The physiotherapist/client relationship is founded on trust and in normal circumstances we will not discuss or disclose to any third party any information about a client or animal without either express or implied consent.
Insurance: We support the principle of insuring against unexpected accidents or illnesses. However, we would respectfully remind you that our terms of payment still apply and that the contract with the insurance company is between the client and the insurance company only. Direct payments to us from an insurance company may only be agreed by express permission of one of the Directors.
Fees: All fees, where applicable, are subject to VAT at the current rate. We calculate our fees on any consumables used, professional time and opinion. Fees will be listed on a detailed invoice which will be produced after treatment.
Cancellation Policy: We understand that there may be extenuating circumstances forcing you to cancel your appointment. In other circumstances, if at least 24 hour's notice is not given, we reserve the right to charge 50% of the appointment charge.
Payment terms: Paid in full within 7 days of invoice. Accounts may be paid by guaranteed cheque, credit or debit card, cash or BACS. If using BACS see invoice for details, or please contact our office on 01432 890490 for our bank details.
Any queries on your account should be raised with the accounts department within 7 days of the date of invoicing.
We reserve the right to charge 2.5% interest per month on any account not paid within 28 days of date of invoice.
Any cheque returned, credit or debit card not honoured, or any cash found to be counterfeit made as full or part payment of an account will be added back onto the account and will incur additional charges in the way of administrative costs and bank charges, and may then be subject to the 2.5% interest charge.
We reserve the right to pursue any unpaid accounts in any manner we deem appropriate. This may include the use of a debt collection service or civil proceedings. Any costs incurred by us in recovering unpaid accounts will be passed onto the respective client.
For failure to comply with our payment terms we reserve the right to withdraw our services and will give notice of this in writing.
In respect of Veterinary Physiotherapy, the registered owner(s) of the animal, at the time of treatment, will be ultimately responsible for payment of all invoices pertaining to that animal.
Complaints: Our aim is to provide a first-class service. However, should you wish to discuss any problems you may have with our services we ask you, in the first instance, to address such issues to either of the Directors.
Liability: You agree that you will not bring any claim arising out of, or in connection with, our services or goods provided against any individual member, Director, employee or consultant of Bradford's Clinics UK Ltd in their personal capacity. Any duty of care which would otherwise, as a matter of law, be owed to you by any of our Directors, employees or consultants is excluded from our contract with you. However, this does not alter or reduce any liability which Bradford's Clinics UK Ltd may have to you. The limitation and exclusions of liability shall not apply to any liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or to any other liability which cannot lawfully be excluded or limited.
Terms of business for services provided outside of the UK and Ireland: This agreement and any dispute or claim arising out of, or in connection with, it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims) shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the law of England and Wales. The parties irrevocably agree that the courts of England and Wales shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any dispute or claim that arises out of, or in connection with, this agreement or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims).
Force Majeure: We will not be liable to you, or deemed in breach of the contract by reason of any delay in performing, or any failure to perform, any of Our obligations in relation to the Services if the delay or failure is due to circumstances beyond Our reasonable control.
