Terms of Business
Carine Henry is a Registered Dietitian (RD) and Paediatric Specialist, regulated by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). Carine’s registration details can be found here.
These Terms of Business are provided at the point of booking and outline both obligations and reasonable expectations in working together. Do please read them and consider carefully, asking any questions you have before the appointment.
Thank you for your choosing to book a Paediatric Nutrition appointment. Should you be unable to attend this appointment for any reason, and provide less than 24 hours-notice, unfortunately the full fee will be due. For health insurance claims, please arrange for reimbursement directly with your insurer, before the appointment using the HCPC Registration Code DT5478.
Confidentiality refers to the respect and privacy Carine Henry is obligated to have towards your information. Prior to and following appointments all information, including digital records, are kept in accordance with data protection and GDPR legislation and are not used or shared without your express permission. This includes medical records, letters, results or written reports containing dietetic, medical and other personal information. Carine Henry is compliant with the ICO Data Protection, Registration No. ZA133818
As an independent professional, working solely with children, Carine is trained to a high level to consider Child Safeguarding. Occasionally, a child or young person may share sensitive or troubling information, in which their health and wellbeing is considered to be at risk. Consent to share this information with parents and/or other professionals will be discussed, but is not required to seek protection for or seek to prevent further harm to that child. In other words, Carine has a duty of care to share information that puts a child’s health at significant risk of harm. A parent is not necessarily informed, and the needs of the child are paramount.
Appointments are scheduled to start and finish on time. This helps to ensure the timely running of the whole clinic. A short amount of time is available between scheduled appointments, to allow for some overlap, and Carine will make all efforts to stay within the allotted time for the appointment. Thank-you for arriving to the appointment on time. For late arrivals, we will aim to finish at the scheduled time.
