Services

The description of the Services is as set out on our website (www.annisummers.com), social media accounts, catalogues, brochures or other forms of advertisement. Any description is for illustrative purposes only and there may be small discrepancies in the content of the Service supplied. All Services are subject to availability.

We, the Supplier, connect with the Healthie Patient Management System (Healthie) platform to store personal data provided to us by you, as well as carry out our Services.

We do not, as standard, provide you with a detailed nutritional analysis of your diet, nor do we supply you with meal plans to follow.

Telehealth Services

All Services are delivered remotely, using video conferencing software, and are referred to as telehealth services or telehealth consultations. This differs from face-to-face consultations, as we will not be in the same room as each other during the consultation. You will need a stable internet connection, microphone and webcam to use telehealth services.

Video recordings are made of telehealth consultations. The sole purpose of this is to facilitate information collection whilst ensuring the uninterrupted flow of the consultation, enhancing your telehealth experience. A transcript is generated and used for my reference to ensure that the information provided during the consultation is accurately documented in your clinical record. Recordings and transcripts will be stored in line with UK GDPR guidelines and destroyed in most instances within 48 hours, and certainly no later than one week, after the date of the recording.

Parts of the consultation involving physical examinations (e.g. body weight), will be conducted by you at your location, with you being responsible for the accurate measurement and reporting of the results of any such examination.

The main risks related to telehealth consultations include: technical difficulties, interruptions, unauthorised access and communication difficulties.

We will ensure that your privacy is protected at our location during telehealth consultations by ensuring nobody else can hear the consultation and using secure and encrypted software. You are responsible for ensuring your privacy is protected at your location.

If an issue arises with technology which we can not fix during the consultation, we can continue the consultation by telephone using the telephone number you provided us with, or rearrange the consultation if needed.
