Please read the following statements and declarations carefully before intitialising each (ask a member of Osteoscan UK if you have any queries).

I consent to a physical examination by Mr NC Birch FRCS (ORTH) Consultant Spinal Specialist and other clinical members of Osteoscan UK as appropriate. If I am uncomfortable with being examined 1-on-1 I can request a chaperone.
I understand that I may be exposed to forms of medical latex within the consultancy rooms of Osteoscan UK and confirm that I have no allergies that would be adversely affected by this. I understand that I should inform the staff of Osteoscan UK if I have any other significant allergies.

I agree to accept my scan results via a non-encrypted email.
I agree that my data (made anonymous) can be used in the future for research purposes (NOT MARKETING)
The information I have provided is correct and not intended to mislead. I have read, understood and completed this form in full and have asked any questions that I may have prior to signing.

In exceptional circumstances involving serious illness, a threat to life or similar, Osteoscan UK may decline this request.
By signing this form I am consenting to all examinations provided by Osteoscan UK staff and/or associates.
I accept complete responsibility for all personal/family/business/corporate (delete where appropriate) interactions with any health insurance schemes that I may be using to help pay for part, or all, of my fees and acknowledge that I am responsible for any debt or shortfall if the insurance company does not remunerate the treatment in full or in part. In these circumstances I understand that I shall be liable for any outstanding accounts under my name and will incur the costs of recovering the debit (to include internal administrative and external agency fees) should it be passed to a debit recovery agency.
