Terms and Conditions of Companion Animal – Out of Hours Emergency Care Plan membership

When joining our Emergency Care plan, you are accepting these terms and conditions. It is important to read them carefully, and please ask a member of staff if you have any queries.

If you would like a copy of these terms

and conditions in larger print – please ask

at reception.

 

  1. The Out of Hours Emergency Care Plan is a rolling 12-month subscription that allows members access to our 24-hour emergency care team at our standard, normal day rate charges. This discount scheme is not an insurance policy.
  2. Your subscription constitutes an agreement between you and Pendle Pet Care Limited trading as Stanley House Veterinary Group. Membership and benefits are not transferable to another practice.
  3. You will have access to our 24-hour emergency out of hours service at our standard fees during the course of their membership; members will not be charged out of hours surcharges. Full details of all costs and surcharges are available from the practice.
  • Failure to make immediate payment for treatment forfeits discounts.
  • It is the on-call vets decision as to what constitutes an urgent out of hours appointment.
  1. The monthly subscription fee for your household will be determined by the number of registered companion animals on your account.
  2. A 14 day ‘waiting period’ will apply for all new joiners; emergency out of hours surcharges will be charged if you are seen within the first 14 days of subscription.
  3. These terms and conditions should be read in conjunction with any additional information including, but not limited to, literature provided by the practice detailing what is included in your membership. That literature forms part of these terms and conditions.
  4. Your responsibilities – You must ensure that your records at Stanley House Veterinary Group are accurate and up to date for membership and discount eligibility purposes.

  6. Your membership fees will be collected by Direct Debit on a monthly basis.
  7. We use Easy Direct Debits Limited to collect Direct Debits on our behalf, and your bank statements will show a

payment to Easy Direct Debits. For the avoidance of doubt, your agreement is with Stanley House Veterinary Group. Easy Direct Debits Limited merely provide support to the practice, which includes transferring your payments.

11. Membership for your household will renew automatically every 12 months from the date that your subscription began.
12. We will tell you in advance, in writing, if there is to be a change in membership fees on your renewal date. We will always give you at least 30 days’ notice of any change in fees as a result of our annual review.
13. In between our annual fees review, your household monthly fee may also change if the number of companion animals in your household changes. A change in fees due to a change in pets will take effect as soon as is reasonably practical.
14. Failed Direct Debit payments, eg because of a lack of available funds, cause a significant increase in administration costs for the practice. We reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £5 for each failed payment. This administration charge will be added to your account.
15. After a failed Direct Debit payment, we will re-present our payment request to your bank after 3-5 working days.
16. If the second payment request also fails, a second administration charge may be added to your account. We will make a third and final payment request to your bank after a further 3-5 working days. If this payment request is unsuccessful your subscription will be cancelled automatically and your pet will no longer receive the associated benefits or any discounts which have been applied.
17. If your subscription is cancelled automatically because of failed direct debits, your account will be reviewed and you will be charged the out of hours surcharges of any services received during the course of your subscription.
18. Ending our agreement / cancelling your membership:
• You may cancel your membership on your renewal date (which is the 12-month anniversary of the date you joined) by giving us not less than thirty days’ notice.
• If you cancel your membership before your anniversary date, we will review your account and, where applicable, charge you retrospectively the out of hours surcharges of any services received during the course of your subscription.
