Please note that if you are not an SA resident you will be required to sign an indemnity form.

  • As the self-declared person responsible for this account (irrespective of whether I am the main member or a dependant on a medical aid), I accept that I am solely responsible to settle this account.

  • I acknowledge that my account must be paid on the day of my appointment.

  • I will notify the practice immediately, in writing, should any of my personal or medical aid information change. 

  • A cancellation fee will be charged unless appointments are cancelled more than 24 hours in advance.

  • Through this document I have been informed that when I enter into consultation with the FAC, I will be giving them my personal information that may be protected by data protection legislation, including but not only, the Protection of Personal Information Act, 2013 (POPI) and that the FAC will take all reasonable steps to protect my personal information.

  • In case of a complaint or dispute regarding the care provided by either the FAC, it's practice staff or locum associates - patients must undertake to embark on a course of formal mediation before litigation is pursued. Please click on the link below to read more about the pre-mediation clause and procedures for dispute resolution.

  • I agree to not communicate with the FAC on medical matters via sms – all such correspondence must go via email.
