Healios private care will be trading as Melios.

Statement of Purpose
Healios is a specialist independent digital mental healthcare provider for children and young people.
Melios helps children to reach their potential through online assessments which can be accessed within weeks and without a referral.
2.0 Client Registration
All clients must register, pay and complete the mandatory information forms before they are able to book an appointment with a clinician for the services provided by Melios.
We charge fixed fees for both assessments and interventions. These fees cover the cost of clinician time during the assessment, all materials consumed in the assessment, any research or supervision required, making and receiving telephone/video calls, as well as responding to emails and issuing letters/reports.
All fees are charged in Sterling. Prices are subject to change without notice.
By using the services provided by Melios, you agree to our charging policies and the terms and conditions of the business.
2.2 Payment Terms
All fees must be paid in advance of the Assessment or Intervention. Only once payment has been received and all mandatory data are completed can an appointment be secured.
We accept online payment by UK credit/debit cards or bank transfer. We will provide a receipt for all payments made by clients.
We accept payment from Insurers by mutual agreement. Clients are responsible for gaining consent for all interventions and care provided by Melios from their insurer. Melios will provide a receipt of service.
2.3 Cancellation Policy
When clients book an appointment they are reserving the clinician’s time exclusively for their assessment.
Should you decide not to go ahead with an assessment or intervention from Melios, we require at least 48 hours notice. If however, life events mean that an appointment needs to be rescheduled, this can be accommodated. We are only able to reschedule twice, at which point we reserve the right to withdraw the service.
Cancellations with less than 48 hours’ notice will incur a charge of 25% of the assessment fee. If less than 24 hours’ notice is given, or if you do not attend your appointment then 50% of the fee will be charged (cancellation of Monday appointments must be given by 12pm on the Thursday before).
2.4 Non-engagement of client
On the rare occasion that a client is not able to engage with the online platform experience we will endeavour to support the young person by offering shorter opportunities to help them feel more comfortable. However, if this is not successful, we will convert the assessment to a Neurodevelopmental Screen, which will be charged at the rate of £895, and the difference will be refunded to the customer.
3.0 Communication and Confidentiality
We have robust standards in the maintenance of confidentiality. If clients have any preference as to the method of our communication please state this in the registration process.
All sessions on our digital platform are recorded and are maintained in accordance with clinical record standards.
Whilst Melios is not required to be registered with the Care Quality Commission, we only employ clinicians who are registered with the HCPC.
3.2 Data Protection Act 1998
We observe the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 and the data protection principles in relation to personal data. By agreeing to these terms you are agreeing to the processing of personal data to enable us to carry out work on your behalf. Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have a right to request details of your personal data held by us.
