6 Cancellation Policy
Our goal is to provide quality healthcare to all our patients in a timely manner. No-shows, late arrivals, and cancellations inconvenience not only our providers, but our other patients as well. Please be aware of our policy regarding missed appointments.
6.1 Appointment Cancellation
When you book your appointment, you are holding a space on our calendar that is no longer available to our other patients. In order to be respectful of your fellow patients, please cancel your appointment as soon as you know you will not be able to make your appointment.
If cancellation is necessary, we require that you cancel at least 48 hours in advance. Appointments are in high demand, and your advanced notice will allow another patient access to that appointment time.
6.2 How to Cancel Your Appointment
If you need to cancel your appointment, please go online to https://book.livingcare.co.uk and visit the “Bookings” page under the “My Account” section.
In order to view your bookings you will need to login with the email address and password you used/created at the time the booking was created. If you do not know your password you can reset your password using the “Lost you password” link on the login page.
If you are still unable to access your account you may email [email protected] with details of your booking and/or account information and they will be able to assist you in accessing your account to cancel your appointment. Please do not share passwords and/or payment information with anybody. We will never ask you for this information. In the event you are unable to access your account but wish to cancel your appointment the 48 hours will be taken from the time your initial email is received by our email servers as we recognise that in some cases we may not be able to help you restore access to your account before the 48hour period approaches.
Refunds are manually processed within 72 hours of your online cancellation. For online orders you will receive an email notification once the refund has been processed. Refunded payments are returned back to the original payment method within 7 Business Days of the refund being processed.
Please note, for the products providing Day 2/Day 2/8 testing, we limit the right to refund up until the point of your order being despatched. Once your order has been despatched we are unable to provide a refund for these tests.
For Antigen/Lateral flow testing, please note that the same above policy applies; “Once your order has been despatched we are unable to provide a refund for these tests.”
6.4 Late Cancellations/No-Shows
A cancellation is considered late when the appointment is cancelled less than 48 hours before the appointed time. A no-show is when a patient misses an appointment without cancelling. In either case, we will charge the patient a missed appointment fee of 100% of their original booking cost.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios:
(a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy;

We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
