This may only proceed following the receipt of the 'Health Questionnaire' which must be completed in advance of this appointment. This is found in the drop-down menu to the 'Book Online' tab above, or there are links to it from the BOOK ONLINE page too or www.tongue-tie.info/health-questionnaire. It is sent to me securely so that I have your background information in advance of your appointment, (it is not visible to anybody else). I appreciate the 'Health Questionnaire' appears long, although this is not expected to take longer than 10 minutes to complete-but it is important as without this information, I am unable to provide you with a balanced realistic assessment and feeding plan. FAILURE TO COMPLETE YOUR 'HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE' IN ADVANCE OF YOUR APPOINTMENT MAY RESULT IN BEING UNABLE TO COMPLETE YOUR ASSESSMENT. (The only exception to this is if you have already had a consultation with myself, in which case please call me to arrange) At your appointment, I will discuss your ‘health questionnaire’ responses, perform a full tongue motility assessment and potentially also a division of a restrictive tongue-tie. A tongue function assessment is conducted following medical, birthing and feeding consultation. If a division is assumed beneficial, it will be offered during the appointment-although there is no obligation to do so. A feeding plan & ongoing unlimited support (via text or closed Facebook group for peer support) is also included. Cost is inclusive of weekly follow-up support IF you require a division (text or phone calls. face:face review/reassessment consultations incur a charge). Should a division not be necessary, I will offer you a partial refund(please refer to the ‘BOOK ONLINE’ tab to clarify the payment breakdown). I am also a lactation consultant (IBCLC), so should there not be a restriction, I can investigate the feeding issues, suggest a feeding plan, or signpost you to additional services who may further support you. Only the gestational birth parent,plus 1 additional supporting adult maximum and the baby may attend other attendees will be asked to wait outside in your vehicle. The clinic is next to a beautiful park, so should you have older siblings an adult may take them there-but the gestational parent is required to stay at my clinic for both consent and feeding purposes. Please discuss your requirements with me in advance should these requirements not suit your needs. PLEASE SEE EMAIL CONFIRMATION FOR ATTENDANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Sometimes, unavoidable things happen which may mean you would need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, and I understand this. Should you wish to cancel your appointment at any point, please do so at your earliest convenience. I usually have more than one last minute emergency referral that commonly need to make an urgent appointment; who may appreciate an earlier time slot should one become available. Unfortunately I am unable to refund your initial deposit, unless you were to reschedule this, then can then be transferred, unless less than 4 hours notice is given, in which case your deposit is lost. If you are running late for your appointment, please call me to discuss, as if you are estimated to arrive 10 minutes later than the scheduled time you may miss your appointment and loose your deposit/booking fee, Please ring me to confirm 07910608179. Should I need to cancel I will do so as early as possible and I will do my very best to rearrange your appointment with minimal delay, or refund your deposit/booking fee so you have the option to choose an alternative provider if necessary. (www.tongue-tie.org.uk/find-a-practitioner). In the event of a sudden serious illness or critical accident where I would be unable to contact you, or in the event of my death, all appointments would be cancelled by a third party (also healthcare professional who is DBS checked) and arrange a refund as able. Of course the nominated person will need to gain access to your name, telephone number and payment details in order to do so and access to this is protected so may take a while for them to access this information legally. The Association of Tongue-Tie Practitioners (ATP) would be made aware to remove my name from their approved listings, and notices would be put on both my website and social media pages. Patient records will see be available should you wish to view them for 25 years post division. If I have died, Please contact ICO (details are found on the 'Privacy Notice' tab) for details of my successor who will be able to arrange this for you ensuring you can provide the required formal identification. Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have 07910608179.
