5. COMPLAINT

The Fitzroy Surgery moderator cannot comment on the public forum on an individual issue or complaint due to patient confidentiality rules. Fitzroy Surgery cosmetic surgery employs a robust formal complaints process.

Whilst we understand that patients who have registered a complaint may be anxious waiting for an outcome, some cases may prove to be more complex than others and can take longer to both investigate and resolve. Once a verbal or written complaint is submitted you must not discuss your issue of complaint on the Fitzroy Surgery forum, Fitzroy Surgery social media pages or other social platforms as this could affect the efficiency of your complaint procedure and be detrimental to your issue being resolved in a timely matter. As this is an open complaints process any comments regarding this will be removed.

6. PRICE

At Fitzroy Surgery we pride ourselves on offering a high level of service and quality in all that we do. We feel that our prices are fair for the service and specialised skill and experience within Fitzroy Surgery. Different companies offer different prices but we would strongly recommend that careful research is carried out and clinical performance considered as different companies have surgeons with different skill levels, revision rates, implant types and patient satisfaction ratings. Some who have a less robust proposition are able to charge less. Of course price is important but this should never be the principal factor in making a decision. In relation to the discussion of surgery prices on our Fitzroy Surgery forum we understand that it is in your interest to research this particular subject however we would like to remind you that although we have a list of prices these can change subject to individual circumstances e.g. late space, implant choice, subtle variation in procedure etc. We are not able to go into detail to explain these variances on the Fitzroy Surgery Forum so therefore we reserve the right to remove any post which discusses pricing or we will edit your post removing the price stated and putting £*** .

7. OTHER COSMETIC SURGERY PROVIDERS

We understand that the forum can and should be used for conducting cosmetic surgery research.

However you must respect that this is a Fitzroy Surgery forum and only information about procedures and experiences undertaken by Fitzroy Surgery should be discussed here. We understand that not everyone is solely a Patient of Fitzroy Surgery. We offer a great and fantastic forum – however we must ask you to respect that no other cosmetic surgery provider or surgeon should be mentioned by name on our forum e.g.
‘I have a consultation with Fitzroy Surgery but I also have one with another cosmetic surgery provider’ or ‘I had a Rhinoplasty with a private surgeon.’ . This forum is strictly for discussions about Fitzroy Surgery and not to positively or negatively post about other providers. If these guidelines are not abided by then we reserve the right to remove any post we deem a violation of these rules. Continuing to do so could result in a warning and deletion of your account.
To prevent misleading others about Fitzroy Surgery – we ask you should not comment negatively about a procedure/experience without stating that it is with another cosmetic surgery provider. If however it is a negative or a concerned post about the Fitzroy Surgery service then we would encourage you to message the Fitzroy Surgery Moderator with you concern prior so that this can be dealt with in a timely matter.
We are proud of our forum – we are the only UK cosmetic surgery provider who is proud and confident in the level of service that we offer to then allow our Patients to discuss anything Fitzroy Surgery related. Therefore we must ask that this isn’t a forum for Patients who have had procedures with other cosmetic surgery providers to upload pictures or share and discuss their procedure and/or experience. We reserve the right to delete the full account of anyone who uploads pictures, comments and posts about other cosmetic surgery providers or had their procedure with another cosmetic surgery procedure.

8. SPAM/PROMOTION

Fitzroy Surgery will remove all spam and links to other web pages. Accounts which we have good reason to believe to be spam will instantly be deleted. If you wish to link to another web page or blog please inform the Fitzroy Surgery Moderator prior to doing so.
Example “girls I have found a great website to buy a cheap V-pillow (insert link) its only £5” this is fine but send the link to the Fitzroy Surgery moderator first or the post will be removed.
We encourage all members of the Fitzroy Surgery forum to contact the Fitzroy Surgery moderator if they believe an account to be fake or misleading.
