These terms were last updated on 07/09/2017.
These are the terms for the supply for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy services provided online (the Services) through https://uk.iesohealth.com/ (Site). The Site and the Services are provided by Ieso Digital Health (UK) Ltd (Ieso, we, us and our). Your use of the Services offered on the Site is subject to these terms and by using the Services you agree to be bound by them.
The Services offered to you on the Site are provided under a contract between Ieso and a Payer. The Payer is typically an NHS commissioner or provider who has entered into a contract with Ieso to provide the Services to their patients. Our contract with the Payer lays out many detailed criteria about our responsibilities to you such as, for example, that the Services provided meet National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines. (See “Our Responsibilities” below). The Services are provided to you free of charge on the condition that you meet the suitability and eligibility criteria required by the Payer.
Our Services are not intended to replace the services offered to you by your GP, and we therefore recommend that you keep your GP informed about the Services that you are receiving from us.
Our normal practice is therefore to notify your GP at assessment and discharge. You will also receive a copy of this correspondence. Your therapist will ask your consent before contacting your GP to share further information about your treatment and you may decline this. In very rare situations in which we have a serious concern about your safety or the welfare of another (child or adult) we will have a legal duty to act. On these occasions we will seek to discuss this directly with you but if necessary we may need to disclose information to your G.P. or another statutory agency without your consent. If you have any concerns about any of this we would advise you to talk directly to your therapist.
The registration process enables us to collect your details and assess your suitability and eligibility. The Services are not suitable for everyone. Determining your suitability includes a clinical assessment undertaken by the Payer or Ieso.
Your eligibility is usually determined by where you live, the General Practitioner (GP) you are registered with, and / or your age. We have full and sole responsibility to decide not to provide the Services to you and to take as much time as we need to do so.
Following commencement of treatment, we may at our sole discretion withdraw the Services from you. In such cases, we will usually refer you back to the Payer or your GP as appropriate and as agreed in our contract with the Payer.
During registration and throughout treatment, you will be providing us with sensitive personal information. We take the responsibility for keeping this information secure and confidential very seriously.
The handling and use of your personal information submitted us is governed by our Privacy Notices.
We recognise the particular sensitivity of our Site holding treatment session transcripts and we only ever share the minimum information necessary to provide the best treatment, care and protection to yourself and others.
Our Privacy Notices give a clear and detailed explanation about what information we collect; how we collect it; when we might share it and to whom; how we store and keep your information secure; your access, rights and choices; cookies on our site; how to ask us questions; and specific information for young people using the service.
