There can be no guarantees that dietary changes will be effective for your particular problem or goal, as there are many non-dietary factors that may influence symptoms or behaviour change. Elaine Allerton Dietitian is considered a guide or facilitator, whilst you make a commitment to follow the advised dietary changes. 

Fees & Payment

The full cost of the consultation will be required on booking. Current fee information can be found under the Consultations tab or by direct enquiry.

Cancellations of Services & Refund Policy

At least 48 hours notice of cancellation must be given for a full refund. If a consultation is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice, the full cost of the consultation will be retained. In the case of a 'package', this will be equivalent to one session being used.

Elaine Allerton Dietitian reserves the right to cancel a consultation at her discretion, however this will only ever be due to very exceptional circumstances, and a full refund of the consultation will be provided. I accept no liability whatsoever for any financial or other consequences of the cancellation e.g. travel costs.

Arriving late for an appointment

Elaine Allerton Dietitian will use best efforts to offer the full session, however this will be dependent on other bookings and consultation room availability following your appointment. If your consultation has to be shortened due to your late arrival, the full consultation fee remains payable.
