As a courtesy, Therapies for Kids has a process in which two business days prior to your appointment we endeavor to send you an SMS message to remind you of your existing confirmed appointment (or in the absence of a cell phone contact, contact you by your other nominated contact.) We take all care to remind you of your appointment, but the responsibility is yours to attend or to cancel within the cancellation period. We do not accept your non-receipt of the SMS reminder as a valid reason for missing your scheduled appointment.
Cancellation Policy and Missed Appointment Fee
Please note that our Cancellation policy is strictly enforced and Missed Appointment Fees will be vigorously pursued. We have clients on a waiting list and so as much notice as possible will allow others to receive therapy.
Our existing policy is :
For Monday to Friday appointments: notification by 12 noon of the business day prior to the scheduled appointment
For Saturday appointments: notification by 12 noon TWO business days prior ie Thursday.
If notification of cancellation is received after the prescribed 12 noon deadline, a missed appointment fee of 90% of the consultation fee will be applied. Where a client fails to turn up for an appointment without any notification (either in rooms or out of rooms) the full consultation fee will be applied.
