Booking and confirming appointments

  • Appointments must be confirmed by email, even if they are scheduled over the telephone
  • Once you have confirmed that you would like to accept an appointment, you will receive an email to let you know if you have been booked in (if the slot is still available)

Remote consultations

  • Remote consultations take place via Zoom or telephone
  • If you have private medical insurance, please check with your insurer that they cover remote consultations
  • Remote new patient assessments can only take place via Zoom (video)
  • Zoom (video) consultations are preferable for follow-up appointments
    • In instances where this may not be possible, phone consultations are an option
  • You will receive the Zoom link within 48-hours of the appointment time.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the connectivity required to join the Zoom meeting at the time of your appointment
    • If you have not connected with me within the first 20 minutes of your appointment time, you will forfeit the remainder of the appointment
    • Where possible, I will try to phone you if you have not joined the Zoom session, and I have not heard from you
    • If you have not connected to the Zoom meeting, and I cannot reach you via telephone, you will be deemed to have missed your appointment and you will not be eligible for a refund
    • If you join the meeting late (within the first 20 minutes), you will only be reviewed for the remainder of your allocated time

Paying for appointments

  • Self-funding
    • Payment in required in advance of the appointment
    • You will receive the invoice and card payment link prior to the appointment
    • If payment is not made, this may delay and cut into the appointment time, or delay the issuing of a prescription or clinic letter
  • Health insurance
    • I am recognised by the major UK health insurers including, but not limited to, BUPA, BUPA Global, AXA, AXA International, Aviva, Vitality, Simply Health, WPA, Cigna, and Cigna Global.
    • Most insurers require a GP referral letter before authorising treatment
    • If you have medical insurance, you must provide your details (name of insurer, membership, and authorisation numbers) in advance of the consultation
    • Unless you provide these details, you will need to pay for the consultation and reclaim the cost from your insurer
    • For ongoing treatment, it is your responsibility to ensure that each appointment is authorised
    • If an unauthorised appointment takes place, you will need to pay for the consultation (prior to requesting a report from me) and reclaim the cost from your insurer.
    • Your insurance policy may be subject to an excess (e.g., the first £100 of a claim, each policy year)
    • This will need to be settled before further appointments can be booked

Outstanding debt

  • Outstanding debt will be passed onto a debt-collection agency, who will then contact you directly
  • Once this process is initiated, you will also be liable for their collection fee and their charges will be added to and payable with the invoice debt
  • This may affect your personal credit rating

Making a payment

  • Bank transfer: Account information is detailed on the invoice
  • Card payments: Please let us know if you would like to pay by debit/credit card so we can issue an online payment link
    • We do not take card payments over the phone

Re-scheduling or cancelling appointments

  • If you are unable to attend your appointment, please let us know at the earliest opportunity
  • Costs are incurred when changes are made at short notice
  • When appointments that are cancelled or rescheduled within 48-business-hours of the consultation date/time, the full fee is charged
  • The same applies if you fail to show up for your appointment (in person) or connect with me (remotely)
  • Medical insurers do not cover cancellations and no-shows, and so you will have to settle the fee at the self-funding rate
  • Cancellations and/or requests to reschedule appointments must be made by email to contact@drwaynekampers.co.uk

Business hours are:

  • 09:00 to 17:30, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays and other public holidays)

Issuing of prescriptions following a remote consultation

  • Prescriptions are sent electronically to a pharmacy
  • We do not email prescriptions to patients, nor do we post them to a home or work address
  • Controlled Drug prescriptions (i.e., ADHD medications) are sent electronically to a designated pharmacy in Central London, who can also post the medication using a signed-for delivery method, courier, or DHL
    • The pharmacy will outline the associated cost when they contact you (via WhatsApp)
    • Alternatively you can collect the medication from them in person
  • Regular prescriptions can be sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy
    • You will need to provide the full details - pharmacy name, address, contact telephone number, fax number, and email address
    • You will also need to confirm with the pharmacy that they are willing to issue the medication on the back of an electronic prescription
    • This is essential in order to avoid any delay in you receiving your medication
    • Whilst the hardcopy is always be posted to the pharmacy, there may be a delay in them receiving it
  • Once a prescription has been issued and sent to a nominated pharmacy, it cannot be re-routed to another pharmacy

Repeat prescriptions

  • Prescriptions issued during a consultation should last you until your next follow-up appointment
  • A fee of £50 is therefor made to cover the time and administrative costs of issuing prescriptions outside of an appointment
  • It will not always be possible to issue a repeat prescription outside of an appointment; this will depend on your condition, how long it has been since your last appointment, what medication you are on, and why you require the prescription
  • A request for a repeat prescription should not be a substitute for a consultation
  • At least 72-business hours' notice is required, as well as payment of the prescription fee, before a prescription can be issued
  • FP10 prescriptions for Controlled Drugs (i.e., ADHD medications such as Concerta, Elvanse, and Dexamfetamine) can only be issued within the context of an appointment for 30-days at a time
    • Such medications have special legal controls
  • In some cases, it may be possible for your GP to take over the prescribing of your medication
  • This will depend on the medication you are on, how long you have been taking it for, and whether your GP is willing to do so
  • If you are under my care for treatment of ADHD, you will need to see me on a monthly basis for a reviewing and issuing of your prescription
    • As of 2022, I will no longer enter into any Shared Care Agreement (SCA) with an NHS GP.
    • This will not affect any agreements already in place
    • A SCA should ideally be between an NHS specialist and NHS primary care prescriber (NHS GP)

Statement of Fitness for Work certificates

  • I can only issue a Statement of Fitness for Work note within 24-hours of a formal review/appointment
    • This is a legal requirement
    • In some instances, it may therefore be quicker to contact your GP if you require one
    • It is also worth checking the current guidance on the gov.uk website

Discharge process

  • As part of my duty of care, I have to review my patients on a regular basis (at least every three months), so that I can effectively manage their mental health condition and any associated risks
  • Unless otherwise agreed with me, if you have not seen me for more than three months, you will be considered as having self-discharged from active follow-up and will be discharged from my care
  • Whilst we do usually make contact after each appointment to schedule a follow-up review, it is your responsibility to arrange an appointment if you do not hear from us
  • If you are discharged from my care and wish to be referred back to me at a later stage, I will need an up-to-date GP referral letter before an appointment can be considered
  • If I agree to offer another appointment, I will need to assess you as a new patient (one-hour consultation)

If you proceed with booking an cofiming an appointment, you are deemed to have accepted my Terms and Conditions.
