Unvaccinated Surgical Patients-
Surgical patients who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 will be required to carry out a COVID-19 PCR swab test four days prior to surgery and self isolate for 3 days. These tests can be obtained at a cost of approximately £79 from many chemists, including Boots. Patients are requested to advise the clinic of the result of this test. If a Patient tests positive for COVID-19, surgery will be postponed without incurring a charge.
The clinic will risk assess unvaccinated patients on an individual basis. For the safety of fellow patients and the clinic team, management reserves the right to refuse treatment and/or surgery to any prospective patient who is unwilling to support and comply with the protocols set out above.
Vaccinated Surgical Patients-
Surgical Patients who are vaccinated against COVID-19 will be required to carry out a COVID-19 lateral flow test two days prior to surgery. On the morning of surgery, a further COVID-19 lateral flow test must be performed before arrival at the clinic. Patients will be asked to confirm they have not been in contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 10 days. Patients will also be required to provide their NHS pass upon arrival at the clinic. If a Patient tests positive for COVID-19, surgery will be postponed without incurring a charge.
As a healthcare environment, we continue to follow NHS England guidance and politely request patients attending clinic continue to wear face masks during their visit.
All listed appointment times allow for treatment room preparation and pre-treatment consultation. The times also allow, where required, for you to change both before and after the procedure. With this in mind, we encourage you to arrive promptly- or better still- a couple of minutes prior to your booked appointment. Unfortunately, if you are running late for your appointment it may be necessary for your treatment time to be reduced accordingly- or in some cases rescheduled altogether- to ensure the next patient can be seen at their allocated slot.
Where appropriate, we are pleased to offer a number of treatments as courses, at a reduced ‘package’ price. In order to guarantee the best possible results, we insist that all courses are completed within 24 months of initial treatment. Regretfully, prepayment for treatments not taken within this timeframe will be forfeited.

If you are unable to attend an appointment for a non-surgical procedure, we require a minimum of 24 hours notice to allow us to offer this space to other patients on our waiting list. Where less than 24 hours notice is given, payment in full will be required to secure future appointments.
Booking of surgery is confirmed only upon payment of a £500 non-refundable deposit. Cancellation of the booking within 14 days of the surgery date will incur a charge equivalent to 50% of the deposit. Cancellation of the booking within 48 hours of the surgery date will incur a loss of the full deposit. Cancellation must be done through speaking with a member of the Coppergate Clinic team, either in person or over the telephone. Emails, written cancellation or voice messages are not accepted as they may not be received.

Heather Clayton is our Complaints Manager and will be your personal contact to assist you with any complaints. If your verbal complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction within 24 hours or if you complain in writing, the Complaints Manager will acknowledge it in writing within 3 working days and will aim to provide a full response in writing within 10 working days.
If the Complaints Manager is unavailable, we will take brief details about the complaint and will arrange for a meeting when the person is next available. We will keep comprehensive and confidential records of your complaint, which will be stored securely and only be accessible only by those who need to know about your complaint.
If the complaint investigation takes longer than anticipated the Complaints Manager will keep you informed of the reason for the delay, the progress of the investigation and the proposed date it will be completed.
When the investigation has been completed, you will be informed of its outcome in writing and invited to a meeting to discuss the results and any practical solutions that we can offer to you. These solutions could include replacing treatment, refunding fees paid, referring you for specialist treatments or other solutions that meet your needs and resolve the complaint.
We regularly analyse patient complaints to learn from them and to improve our services. That’s why we always welcome your feedback, comments, suggestions and complaints.
If your Practitioner agrees that the aesthetic outcome of your procedure was not in line with the expected outcome that was discussed and documented during consultation, you will be offered one complimentary episode of aesthetic revision treatment within your Fixed Price. To qualify, you must notify the Clinic of your concerns, in writing, within 12 months of your original procedure date. Regretfully, if you are still unhappy following the further single episode of aesthetic revision treatment, no further treatment will be be offered.
Treatment for clinical complications and aesthetic revisions includes any consultations, out-patient, day-care and in-patient treatment which your Consultant says you need and which the Clinic is able to provide at no additional cost to you. Where we are unable to treat your clinical complications, you agree that appropriate follow-up care may be provided by your GP or the NHS.
